What Liverpool's Latest Goalie Injury Means For Caoimhin Kelleher

What Liverpool's Latest Goalie Injury Means For Caoimhin Kelleher

Some of the gloss has been taken off of Liverpool's Wednesday night Super Cup win. Jurgen Klopp has this morning confirmed that goalie Adrian was hurt during the celebrations. The news is troubling for Liverpool as it is their second goalie injury in five days. With Allisson out for 4-6 weeks with a calf injury, there could be opportunity for Corkman Caoimhin Kelleher.

Klopp said Adrian injured his ankle in the incident and could miss Liverpool's trip to Southampton tomorrow.

This appears to create some opportunity for Kelleher, who was in Liverpool's squad for the match Wednesday but has been recovering from an injury this month. In his press conference today, Klopp said Kelleher is not 100% and hinted that if Adrian is unable to play against Southampton, it will more likely be journeyman keeper Andy Lonergan who'll start.
