RB Leipzig's Naby Keita appeals against fine in 'fake licence' case

Naby Keita has appealed against the court's punishment.

RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita has appealed against a penalty order for submitting a fake driver's licence, a Leipzig district court spokesman has told ESPN FC.

The spokesman did not confirm a Bild report that Keita, who will join Liverpool next summer, had been told to pay €415,000.

"Yes, there is a penalty order against Mr Keita for forgery," court spokesman Stefan Blaschke said.

"It's a six-figure number, but I can't confirm or deny today's report in Bild Zeitung since an appeal has been lodged."

The Bild report said Keita had twice tried to use counterfeit Guinean driving licences to obtain a licence in Germany.

He reportedly made attempts in both December 2016 and January this year using licences described as forgeries.

Bild said Keita had been served with a penalty order of 50 daily fines in lieu of prison time.

The fines are calculated from rate of income, with the court assuming that Keita has a net income of €3 million per year.

Keita's appeal is set to lead to a case at Leipzig's district court next year.

Leipzig said at the weekend they were aware of the situation, and press officer Florian Scholz added in a statement that the club "are not assuming this is a forgery matter."
