Van Dijk hails Liverpool star after win over Chelsea


Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk has hailed goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher, describing him as ‘world class’ after his impressive display for the Reds in their Carabao Cup final 1-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Liverpool defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley Stadium, thanks to Van Dijk’s second half extra-time header.

However, Kelleher was one of the star performers for Jurgen Klopp’s side as he made a number of top saves to keep the game goalless until Van Dijk headed home after 118 minutes.

“I’m probably one of his biggest fans, I think,” Van Dijk told Sky Sports

“I have always said he is world class and he stepped up today again.

“It’s good to see, he is a good boy, good goalkeeper, that is what we need at a club like Liverpool.”
