[Ralph Hasenhuttl talks about Naby Keita] Leaving a man like Keita out is not easy as a coach. He is an extraordinary player [so] there must be a place there [in the side for him]. If he is fully fit and if he can sprint and run, then his class is just insane; he makes all the right calls

[Ralph Hasenhuttl believes Naby Keita is treated unfairly after the midfielder was sent off for the third time in seven games for club and country] I think Naby Keita got two yellow cards for two fouls. In my opinion, Naby got a yellow card for every first foul. Before he gets the first yellow he was fouled dozens of times. In these situations I miss the equality of rights, but that was not the decisive scene of the game

[Hasenhuttl was left upset by a first-half incident, when the referee changed his mind and awarded Leipzig a free-kick after initially pointing to the penalty spot] The decisive moment was when the referee decided for a penalty from the distance of three metres and took it back because his assistant had the better view from a distance of 40 metres

Sorry, but it is very difficult to accept what’s going on with a referee in such a situation. He was so confident as he blows the whistle and he didn’t hesitate for a second so I can’t understand why he took the penalty back because of a note from such a distance, but we can’t change it

[Ralph Hasenhuttl speaking after new loan signing Ademola Lookman scored on his debut with the German Bundesliga club] He was lucky I didn’t take him off again, he only brought one pair of boots with him from England and he was sliding around all over the pitch!
