Spanish goalkeeper Adrian has signed a new contract with Liverpool. 

The 34-year old will continue to vie with Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher for the role as back-up to first choice custodian, Alisson.

Adrian joined Liverpool in 2019, surprisingly making his debut on the opening night of their title-winning 2019-20 campaign when Alisson was forced off with an injury against Norwich City.

That game was the first of 24 appearances the former West Ham keeper has made for the Merseyside club.

Adrian started three games last season, including Liverpool's 7-2 defeat away to Aston Villa in October.

“I try to help the team in every moment,” he told, “To try to enjoy and give my experience in every second, to the player who plays in that moment or when I play, to try to be together at the same time.

“As Jürgen said, I’m a team player – I try to support, to give that confidence to those players, to try to give that confidence in the dressing room, in the training ground every day. To push each other.

“Because when you are giving your best, the other one is giving their best for sure and you’re pushing each other. At the end, it’s good for the club, for the group, for the manager as well to take the right decision in the moment for the game.

“I’m happy to do that job and also to try to have my opportunity as well and give the best when I have the chance.”
