Liverpool star told to leave the club despite continuing to impress under Klopp

Liverpool star told to leave the club despite continuing to impress under Klopp

Liverpool star Caoimhin Kelleher has been told to leave the Reds to “fulfil his potential”.

Liverpool star Caoimhin Kelleher has been told to leave the Reds to “fulfil his potential”.

Despite being behind Alisson Becker in the pecking order, Kelleher has been a crucial part of Liverpool’s cup success over the past year.

The 24-year-old was central to Liverpool’s FA Cup and Carabao Cup triumphs last season, even netting a penalty in the Carabao Cup final shootout.

The Republic of Ireland international also made headlines this term, saving three penalties in the Reds’ shootout win against Derby County.

While Kelleher is contracted at Liverpool until 2026, there have been calls for him to leave the club in pursuit of regular first-team football.

Kelleher to leave Liverpool?

Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon claimed that Kelleher needed to leave Liverpool to fulfil his potential.

Speaking to Football Odds (via Empire of the Kop) Lennon said: “Kelleher will need to leave Liverpool to fulfill his full potential.

“It will be difficult for him to displace Alisson Becker. However, he is still young and has plenty of football ahead of him.

“I’m sure he and Jurgen Klopp would have had conversations about this.”

Liverpool star wants to play

Last month Kelleher opened up about his desire to play more regularly.

The shot-stopper said, via the Liverpool Echo: "Obviously when I get my chance I need to take it.

"That is all I am focusing on really. I just need to be ready so I can step in if there's an injury or if I'm needed.

"I am quite relaxed, so I don't mind watching, but obviously I'd rather be playing but I just try to be as focused as I can be when I watch so I am ready if I am needed.

"Listen, I think we've obviously only just come back into the middle of the season. So we'll just see what the season brings and then after that we'll see, we'll see what happens after that. But I think at the moment, for now, I just have to be focused on trying to be ready for Liverpool."
