Angry youth attack Guinea player’s home

NABY Keita’s house in Conakry, Guinea, was attacked by angry youths at the weekend.

The frustrated group was reported to have accused Keita’s relatives of witchcraft.

“We sent a team of policemen to a house at Coleah in Conakry to restore calm after some youths attempted acts of riotous conduct in a house believed to be the family home of footballer Naby Keita,” a police source based in Conakry said as per the BBC.

Keita, who is expected back in Egypt from Liverpool on Wednesday, has also been reported by the BBC to have reacted to the incident, denouncing those “who want to divide his family.”

The former RB Leipzig midfielder was flown to Liverpool on Sunday night for further examinations by club doctors, following his inability to participate in Guinea’s last Africa Cup of Nations group stage match against Burundi.
