Reporter: "I suppose this has come at
a good time with Alisson
possibly coming back late from international duty.
Is that on your mind?"
Kelleher: "I think no, just at the minute
obviously on the game against Qatar.
Tomorrow is the main focus.
But if I do play at the weekend, that's
like I say, it's good to get a game
in before that as well.
But the main focus is
against Qatar tomorrow."
Reporter: "What's it like every day
in training coming up
against the quality in
attackers they have?
At the elite level of football,
there's a lot that actually does for you
and obviously Alison as well."
Kelleher: "Yeah, and obviously, like I say,
a high level, obviously.
So for me, everyday,
I just want to go in
and try to learn from that
and try to better myself.
It's obviously great to be in and around that,
to learn from that
I think brings quite a lot to me
and improves me quite a lot.
So now I'm so happy to be going in there
to be training with players
of such a high quality."
Reporter: "When you see Mo Salah score
the kind of goal he scored the
what's it like
going up against that in training
and how does that improve you as a keeper?"
Kelleher: "Yeah, like I said,
I think they're some of the best
players in the world that you're training with,
so it's only going to improve you
as a player as well to train
with that kind of level.
So it's helped me a lot.
And I'm just looking forward
to training every day
with that and trying to improve
and get some games."
Reporter: "Over the years you said that was your ambition,
to be Liverpool's number one goalkeeper.
Do you still see that as
that pathway developing?"
Kelleher: "Yeah, I think certainly.
I think there's no point being somewhere
and not thinking
you can be number one.
And I think
you have to have
that mentality and want to
push on and be number one.
if I get a chance, I'll take it.
But I'm just trying to take it
day by day at the minute
and when I do get games
to put in good performances.
And show that I'm capable of that level.
And just trying
to kind of keep consistent
and keep pushing on.
Hopefully one day
I get to that level."
Reporter: "Have you had this conversation
with Liverpool about
maybe trying to go out on loan,
you know, to get some game time,
and is that something you would like?"
Kelleher: "I think it's been a
different situation for me,
I think, like Liverpool
want me to stay as number two
this season, and
it's a good position to be in.
I think hopefully there's a chance
I'll play some games
and get opportunities
to play at a high level,
and if I do, to play well.
But if I do need have that conversation,
about playing more games,
then I'll have it but at the minute,
I think, I'm in a good position
and happy where I am."
Kelleher: "Yeah, I'm not sure.
I mean, I think like I said, I'm
quite focussed on myself.
What I do, I think I'm
quite happy at the minute.
The time does come that
I feel I need to go out,
then I'll have a look at it.
But at the moment, I'm
where I am and I'm happy."
Reporter: "Do you regret not going out on loan
at all? What's your viewpoint?"
Kelleher: "Yeah, I think I don't regret anything.
Everyone's different individually,
have different journeys or whatever.
I think the way my career has gone,
the way Gavin Bazunu's gone, has been
So I don't have any regrets.
Could I have done stuff different?
No, I've done everything
the way I wanted to do,
and I'm quite happy
the way it's turned out at the minute."
Reporter: "Stephen Kenny spoke to us before,
about the prospect of possibly
going on loan to Holland
before a couple of team-mates
got injured. How close was that?"
Kelleher: "Yes, quite close.
I think maybe if,
like you say,
some injuries hadn't happened or whatever, I
maybe would have gone but
a few injuries happened.
So then I wasn't able to go."
