He has featured in consecutive internationals against Belgium and Lithuania, which, Robinson believes, bodes well for Liverpool.

Discussing the Ireland international’s future at Anfield, the 42-year-old told Football Insider:

“He has got a fair bit of game time this season. The fact Klopp played him in the cup final says a lot.

“His international career has not been hampered by the fact he’s not the number one at Liverpool.”

“If he was missing three-quarters of the season and not getting a chance at international level, that would be an issue.

“As long as he is playing a certain percentage of the games and is his country’s number one I think he’ll be happy to stay.”

Robinson, however, did not think that the 23-year-old would always remain content playing behind Alisson.He added:

“There will come a point where he will want to play every week though. He is not going to be one of these guys who sits on the bench for his whole career.
