Rangnick, Leipzig's sporting director, made the claim while reiterating that the Bundesliga runners-up have no intention of allowing Keita to move to Anfield this summer, despite Liverpool's protracted and high-profile pursuit of the 22-year-old.
Leipzig sporting director Rangnick recently stated that he believes the 22-year-old Guinea worldwide is being poorly advised and insists too many outside people are offering their thoughts on his future.
"I said for all the players it is very important to stay together as it's the first time we play Champions League and that is a new situation for every one of us". They're the two most important players on our team.
"When you play such a famous season as a year ago it is normal players get interest, that other clubs are watching us is normal", he said.More news: John Kelly faces 'baptism of fire' in fixing Trump White House

The only way a transfer could still happen prior to the end of August would be if Leipzig performed a U-turn and decided they do not wish to keep an unhappy player.
"He knows this season it will be fantastic for us".
There has, however, been rumblings of a third bid being submitted by Liverpool - following Ragnick's controversial comments and a training ground bust up - in a last ditch effort to bolster their midfield ahead of the new Premier League season.
It remains to be seen how Rangnick's latest comments affect his relationship with Keita, who many expect to leave the east German city next summer at the very latest when his £48m release clause comes into effect. "You have to ask other people", he added.
"Liverpool will not be the only one [to look at Keita next summer] I think".
