Liverpool goalkeeper in talks with club over new contract

The Liverpool goalkeeper claims that he is in talks with the club over a new contract.

Before Liverpool's Champions League quarter final match with Real Madrid, Adrian spoke to Marca in an exclusive interview. The backup keeper spoke about facing Real Madrid, Liverpool's 'downturn' and his contract with the club. 

When asked to speak on the rare campaign and how Jurgen Klopp has opted to play Kelleher he said, "It is being an atypical and irregular season, also on a personal level."

"The coach put Kelleher ahead of me in December, but it's part of our job. We are three good goalkeepers. Physically I feel good, like a bull, and I face the final stretch of the course with the greatest enthusiasm."

The Spanish keeper was then asked about his thoughts on Thiago and if his criticism the midfielder has received is unfair. 

"Of course. Thiago is receiving absurd criticism. He has more than shown what a great player he is and he will also prove it at Liverpool."

Although he provided some good insight, most Liverpool supporters will be interested in hearing about his contract situation. The former West Ham keeper claims that he is in talks with the club. 

"I have just signed a contract and I am happy in Liverpool. Since I arrived they welcomed me with open arms. It has been a step forward in my career, not only for getting titles, but also for being in a great team and training daily with the best in the world."

"The club has made me see that they are happy with me. We are in talks, but nothing is clear yet."

While Adrian says both he and the club are happy, he is also aware that there is still a lot to be done to ensure that he stays with Liverpool beyond this season. 

"It will have to be solved between now and the end of the season. The most important thing is to remain happy and enjoy this profession. I would like to continue here, but there are quite a few points to clarify and make the best decision for all parties."
