The hero who shined in the Carabao Cup final, helping Liverpool win the championship, has just been advised to leave Anfield.
Kelleher receives a message of encouragement from Alisson
In the clash with Chelsea in the last Carabao Cup final, taking place at Wembley Stadium, coach Jurgen Klopp put his full faith in goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher. The 23-year-old star did not disappoint expectations when he played firmly for 120 minutes, and successfully completed the penalty in the last kick, making a great contribution to helping Liverpool win the championship.
Kelleher has signed a new contract with the club until 2026, but he is still only second choice, after Alisson Becker. Recently, former player David James said: “Kelleher, he has proven himself to be a very capable goalkeeper.
Also, when Alisson signs a new five-year contract, you ask the question ‘are you going to be Liverpool’s next No 1, or is this just a stepping stone?
Caoimhin Kelleher shines in the Carabao Cup final.
I think at the moment, obviously Kelleher is getting a lot of praise, he can get away with not being able to play every week.
But there will come a point where Liverpool will have to make a decision, or Kelleher has to make a decision, ‘I’m going to be number one somewhere else, or am I going to stay at this great club, win trophies and come out. field in cup games?’.”
David James was then asked what he would do in Kelleher’s position, adding: “I’m leaving.
I can’t help myself, I just want to play every game. Leaving Liverpool was a big decision, especially for someone like Kelleher.”
