New York Red Bulls’ new Gambian signing Muhamed Keita has been hailed as a talented and skillful player by former Swansea City and US national team coach Bob Bradley.
Bradley coached Keita in 2014 when the player was on loan to Norwegian club Stabaek where he guided them to promotion before the American eventually left to coach in France and then the English Premier League.
Keita spent six years with Norwegian club Strømsgodset from 2008 to 2014, scoring 18 goals in 125 appearances, before moving to Poznan and loaned to several clubs in Norway during his three years in Poland.
“Keita is a talented attacking player who can play wide and in the center,” the former Swansea City gaffer told the Metro this past weekend.
“He’s quick with the ability to create chances and also score some great goals.”
The 26-year-old joined the Major League Soccer club from Polish side Lech Poznan two weeks back but is still yet to be given his debut as he waits for his international clearance.
Keita, who was born in the Gambia, has represented Norway at youth international levels and is yet to be capped at senior level.
He has won the Polish Championship, the Norwegian Championship and the Norwegian Cup during his career, scoring 36 goals and adding 20 assists in 212 professional matches.
