Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Caoimhin Kelleher on the club’s official website for his performance against Leicester City.

Klopp’s Liverpool got the better of Premier League rivals Leicester 5-4 on penalties in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening.

The match finished 3-3 after normal time.

Kelleher made two saves during the penalty shootout, and Liverpool manager Klopp was impressed.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Kelleher: “Yeah, of course it’s important. But he is an outstanding goalkeeper, I don’t want to say anymore he’s a ‘talent’. 

“For goalies maybe it’s possible because they are talents a bit longer because they can play longer. 

“But he is an outstanding goalie; with his feet, game understanding, all the goalie skills. John [Achterberg] and Jack [Robinson] over the years did an incredible job with the boy, it’s really outstanding. 

“Of course it’s nice. It’s not the first time he was part of these spectacular games, against Arsenal [in 2019] it was similar. But now he is even a step further. Like I said, he saved our life, was really helpful tonight.”

Liverpool, who will take on Arsenal in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, are rated at 7/4 favourites on Betfair to win the competition this season.
