Kelleher the hero as Liverpool win Carabao Cup
Caoimhin Kelleher was the hero for Liverpool last night as they won the Carabao Cup.
The former Ringmahon Rangers goalkeeper kept a clean sheet and then scored the decisive penalty kick in an 11-10 shootout win over Chelsea at Wembley.
The Corkman says he wasn’t even aware he scored the winning kick in the immediate aftermath.
“It’s a mad one!
“I thought I’d save a penalty, and I didn’t, I got close to a few.
“When it came down to me I didn’t even think I scored the winning penalty, I’d forgotten I scored the winning one!
“All the penalties from the lads were class, I’m just happy to have scored the winning one.”
🗣 "I forgot I scored the winning one." 😅
