Alisson scuppered Kelleher’s plans to leave Liverpool in Eredivisie loan switch, says Republic of Ireland boss Kenny


Caoimhin Kelleher Alisson

Republic of Ireland boss Stephen Kenny has revealed that Caoimhin Kelleher was supposed to leave Liverpool on loan over the summer, only for an untimely injury picked up by Alisson to scupper those plans.

With minutes hard to come by, Liverpool had planned to send Kelleher to the Eredivisie in order to pick up valuable experience.

Alisson, though, waslaid low in early October with a shoulder complaint, meaning that Jurgen Klopp needed to retain his full complement of custodians.

Kelleher has been forced to stay put as a result, much to the disappointment of the man himself and anational team coach eager for him to get competitive minutes under his belt.

Kenny told reporters ahead of thefriendly clash with England at Wembley Stadium on Thursday: “We really need Caoimhin Kelleher to get matches under his belt as we feel he is ready to play for us

“He was supposed to go on loan to Holland, to a couple of clubs in the Eredivisie in the last window but when the first choice got injured at Liverpool, that move was pulled.

“He wants to go on loan, he was ready to play and certainly we feel we would have benefited from that - but it’s not easy to play at Liverpool, they are world champions at club level aren’t they, so it’s not easy to play there.

“He is good enough to play for Ireland, but he’s not playing matches so it’s an issue. He would have benefitted from that move we feel, but it’s not easy to play at Liverpool.”

While blocking Kelleher’s path in the last window, those at Anfield are aware of the need to get the youngster opportunities.

The Reds’ goalkeeping coach, John Achterberg, has said: “He would like to play games and obviously that would be easier if he went out on loan, but the problem for us is we need three good goalies and he is one of our three.
