According to the Express, Sky Sports pundit, Gary Neville has gone onto praise Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp for signing Alisson Becker. The Brazilian goalkeeper has been a revelation in the goal for the Reds and has not let in a single goal so far this season.
The former Manchester United player has gone onto voice his surprise over Klopp’s choice to back players like Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet to stand in the goal for Liverpool in the last couple of seasons. Both of the goalkeepers have fallen down the pecking order in the Reds’ lineup after the arrival of Alisson from AS Roma and Karius has already been loaned out to Turkish Super Lig club Besiktas on a two-year deal.
Neville is also confident that Liverpool can now take on the best in the business, both in the Premier League and Europe to bring more honours to the club. He said, “At the end of last season when Jurgen Klopp said he was going to keep faith with the two goalkeepers he had, I thought it was strange.
“I didn’t see how that could happen if Liverpool were going to genuinely challenge for the title.
“I watched Alisson and he looked good with his feet, though a few things came off him from parrying.
“He passed his first test against Crystal Palace and I’m not necessarily looking forward to watching him, but I chose him in terms of answering the questions that need to be answered in a new league.”
Alisson was a long-term target for the Reds, who lacked severely in the goal during the Champions League final in the last term, as Karius went onto make two horrible mistakes for Real Madrid to capitalize and clinch the trophy.
