In training sessions, Liverpool goalie Alisson Becker looks “like Andrea Pirlo” as he is so “comfortable on the ball”, says Reds coach Jack Robinson.
Brazil International was moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2018 as part of a package for £65 million ($79 million).
After seeing Liverpool struggle for a reliable option between the sticks, Alisson has become a consistency model.
First-team coach Robinson described Alisson’s capacity to: “Unbelievable! He’s just like Pirlo or something like that.”
“He’s really comfortable with the ball and is willing to get it under pressure. As you see in the games, he’s able to play that nerve strength, that calmness when there is chaos all around him.”
“If a team presses up the pitch, there’s space behind them, obviously.”
“If teams drop off, playing out to the center halves and midfielders should be simple and easy.”
“We are a fast-attacking squad in the essence of how our team works. We aim to split rapidly and the goalkeepers still strive to maintain the game’s tempo and momentum running.”
