Ahead of his first start for Ireland tonight in Dublin, Caoimhin Kelleher has spoken about life at Liverpool.
Kelleher On Being Number One
The 22 year old was asked if he felt he had a chance of unseating Alisson Becker as Liverpool’s number one.
“I think it’s certainly there. There’s no point being somewhere and not thinking you could be number one.”
“You have to have that mentality and I want to push on and be number one. And hopefully if I get a chance, I’ll take it.”
Kelleher On Opportunities At Liverpool
The Irish keeper has has limited opportunities since taking over from Adrian as number two but has been impressive when called upon.
“I’m just trying to take it day by day at the minute, when I do get games for Liverpool, to put in good performances and show that I am capable of playing at that level, and just trying to keep consistent and keep pushing on and hopefully one day I’ll get to that level.”
Kelleher On Liverpool Squad
The stopper also had his say on the quality in and around the Liverpool squad.
“It’s great to be in and around that and learn from. It means a lot to me and I’m so happy to be going in every day and learning from players with such a high quality.”
“Some of the best players in the world are training, so it can only improve you as a player by training at that level. It has helped me a lot and I just look forward to training every day and trying to improve.”
His first start of the season was in the Carabao Cup win at Norwich where he saved a penalty to help the Reds to a 3-0 victory.
He is likely to be given the nod again on Saturday at Watford because Alisson is away on international duty and won’t return in time to play.
Prior to that though Kelleher has his full debut against Qatar in Dublin to look forward to.
