  • The Irishman impressed against the likes of MK Dons, Arsenal and Shrewsbury this season.
  • Kelleher has made 9 appearances for the academy and been on the first-team bench for 12 games.
  • He credits 'best in the world' Alisson Becker for his improvement.
  • The youngster says that watching Alisson and speaking to him everyday is a blessing for someone his age.

For 21-year-old Caoimhin Kelleher, there is no place better to learn the craft of goalkeeping than Melwood.

Why? Because best in the world Alisson Becker trains there, and Kelleher watches him in training and picks his brain as he aims to improve and reach the top himself.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, the Irishman said: "To be honest in the last year, I think I’ve improved quite a good bit in that part of the game.

A lot has been down to him, just watching him and seeing what he does in certain situations in games. Speaking to him as well, he’ll speak to me on what stuff I can improve on, so it’s been a huge help."

Kelleher is highly-rated by the coaches in the academy and the lad has a bright future ahead of himself if he continues to keep his head down and work hard.

Of course, training with the best goalkeeper in the world can only help!
