‘Very impressed’: Keane praises Liverpool player Klopp hasn’t used since February
‘Very impressed’: Keane lauds Liverpool player Klopp hasn’t used since February
Robbie Keane has uncovered that he is ‘exceptionally dazzled’ by Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher.
As far as number two choices, there aren’t many better around in the Premier League than the Republic of Ireland international.
The 23-year-old created a shocking execution in February to assist Liverpool with winning the Carabao Cup – and, surprisingly, scored a punishment in the shootout triumph against Chelsea.
In any case, that remains his latest serious appearance under Jurgen Klopp.
Sadly for the Irishman, Alisson is one of the world’s best goalkeepers and no matter what Kelleher’s capacity, he was continuously going to be a supportive role under Klopp this season.

By the by, former Liverpool contract killer Keane is a huge admirer of this countryman and accepts that he’s simply unfortunate to be stuck behind a particularly epic as the Brazil plug.
He told Liverpool’s true site: “I’m certainly exceptionally intrigued with him. We’ve been extremely fortunate in the Irish team that we have great goalkeepers. I’ve certainly been dazzled with Caoimhín, simply the manner in which he plays – how agreeable, how quiet he is in control of the ball, he has a genuine presence about him.
“As I said previously, on the off chance that he didn’t have somebody like Alisson before him, you’d envision he could be No.1.”
One more piece of hardship for Kelleher is the way that Alisson is staying put.
He might improve, as a matter of fact.
This is somebody who’s still just 29 years old which, in goalkeeper terms, implies he has years left in him.
Sadly, Kelleher is likely must leave Liverpool if he has any desire to play customary football.
