Liverpool boss is happy with Kelleher’s performance

Fri 04 December 2020 | 20:07

Klopp says that Kelleher has proved himself with his great performance in UCL.

Kelleher

started in the

Reds

goal after Becker was ruled out because of a hamstring injury and he proved himself as a reliable second option as he will play in their next match against

Wolves

.

Here is what

Klopp

said about the young goalkeeper on his press conference:

“Yes, he has [impressed] but in life you have to prove things.

“Caoimhin is a sensationally talented goalie. And for goalies it’s really difficult. Goalies have to wait, they can be exceptional but they have to wait for their chance because there’s only one goalie on the pitch and if he plays for 10 years in a row, it’s pretty difficult. You can be still a wonderful goalie and nobody will see.

“Now he got the chance and I think he convinced everybody. He didn’t have to convince us, obviously – we thought it will be like this. But he convinced everybody, that’s good.”

And about

Adrian

he added:

“Adrian doesn’t deserve just to be written off now, there’s no reason for that.

“He supported Caoimhin in an exceptional way. After he got the information that he would not start, he behaved unbelievably. Really, really a lot of respect for that. He expected it actually, but anyway a lot of respect for it.

“And Caoimhin did well. So, there are not a lot of reasons I could mention in this moment to say he will not start against Wolves, but there is training in between and other things, he has to stay fit, we have sessions. All this kind of stuff.

“But he [Kelleher] has done enough to convince me. He did that already months and years ago. Sometimes you have to wait for the right moment and we thought the right moment came on Tuesday.”
