Roberto Firmino has showred a brimful of praise over goalkeeper Alisson Becker for his ‘hard-work’.
Liverpool signed highly-rated Brazillian shot stopper Alisson Becker in the preceding transfer window for a whopping transfer fee of 67 million. It couldn’t have been easy to settle at the position of goal for Liverpool with so much pressure on the shoulders, but the 26-year-old goalkeeper has made it look easy.
Currently, Liverpool has the best defensive record in the Premier League with conceding 13 goals and keeping 13 clean sheets so far in the campaign. The defensive improvement has been on the spotlight this season with goalkeeping cameo Alisson Becker and headstrong defender Virgil Van Dijk being the main reasons for this remalrble imprvoment.
Recently, Reds’ in form forward Roberto Firmino, who was on target for the Merseyside club against Crystal Palace last time out, has rightly hailed his Brazilian counterpart Alisson Becker and has praised his hard work since arriving from AS Roma in the last Summer.
Roberto Firmino insisted,
“Yes, it’s just as difficult to score against him in training as it is in matches,”
“He demands a lot of himself, which is great isn’t it? He’s an excellent keeper and deserves all the success he is having in his life, at work, day-to-day training and in matches.”
Liverpool currently stays at the top of the pile with four points gap over second-placed Manchester City. A recent meeting with Crystal Palace was a stern test of their title credentials but they have surpassed another hurdle. It was not their best performance but it’s the win which matters the most especially when there is an immensely fierce title race.
Currently, The Reds have traveled to Dubai for an intensive training session during the break.
The Premier League leaders come in action on 31st January as they welcome Leicester City for another crucial fixture for the title race.
Alisson Becker has already started making his mark at the Red Half of Merseyside and has become the fan favorite. Surely he is uplifting a pivotal role in Reds’ title challenge and could become one of the most important signings in Klopp’s era.
