I wouldn’t be screaming for him to leave...Richard Dunne shows an understanding of Caoimhin Kelleher's current situation Transfers

Cork-born goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher joined Liverpool’s lower division as a teenager from his native Ireland.

He has progressed through the academy and has taken over the second goalkeeping position from veteran goalkeeper Adrian in the first team, and is now considered an important member of the team as a reliable reserve goalkeeper.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper has reached two Carabao Cup finals, winning both trophies, but has yet to break the stronghold of Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker. Rumors of his departure from Liverpool have been rife in recent years, with news of his transfer last summer and again this winter.

The goalkeeper is capable of playing regularly for most Premier League clubs, and if he decides to leave the club, many clubs will be looking to acquire him.

However, senior Ireland defender Richard Dunne, who also played for Manchester City, expressed his understanding that a move away may not always be the right decision, even if it means a few days out of action.

“It’s a really tough question because Kelleher is 25 years old and played less than 50 senior games,”

“He always performs whenever he plays for both club and country and you’d think he should play more, but he’s won loads of trophies with Liverpool and is second in line at one of the best clubs in the world.”

“It’s easy for us to look in from the outside and say that he should leave, but when you’re playing with some of the best players in the world it’s not as easy as just moving on.”

“Over time, I think he’ll get his fair share of games in the domestic cup competitions that he might be happy with it.”

“As long as he keeps his sharpness and it doesn’t take him two or three games to get up and running then I think he can have a wonderful career there.”

“If he really wants to move out and test himself then there will be plenty of clubs that want to sign him, but I wouldn’t be screaming for him to leave because I think he’s in a really good place at Liverpool.”
