Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has hailed Cork goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher as an "outstanding talent" following his side's 5-0 win over Napoli at the Aviva Stadium.

The 19-year-old Kelleher has impressed during the Premier League side's pre-season campaign, having joined Liverpool from Ringmahon Rangers in 2015. 

He has featured between the sticks against Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City and Manchester United in recent outings.

"I can imagine you want to hear about that, he's an outstanding talent, outstanding," Klopp told Liverpool's official website after the game at the Aviva Stadium.

"Very cool with the ball as we saw in the pre-season games when he played in front of 100,000 and 60,000 he wasn't bothered about that, and that's a very important skill."

Alisson Becker got the nod to play in goals this evening as he made his Liverpool debut against Napoli, but Klopp says that he is happy to have Kelleher in his side and anticipates that he will have a great career ahead of him.

"He was for a long time in his youth an outfield player [and] he must have been a very good outfield player as well because he's really good in that. Fantastic reactions and, if nothing serious happens, he has a really fantastic future.

"I don't know in the moment how many really good goalkeepers Ireland has, but having one more is never a big mistake. I like him a lot and I'm happy we have him in our squad."
