Liverpool star Alisson combines a Premier League rival, an iconic Brazilian stopper and Jan Oblak with HIMSELF to create his all-time best goalkeeper


Liverpool star Alisson has put together his all-time goalkeeper using some key attributes needed for the position.

The goalkeeper is currently out injured in a big blow to the Reds in their bid to win the Premier League, absent since the start of February with a hamstring injury with his return date unclear.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp described the issue as ‘rather serious’, though second-choice stopper Caoimhin Kelleher has impressed as the Brazilian’s deputy so far.

Perhaps surprisingly, he paid tribute to a rival goalkeeper with one attribute, though did back his own abilities in various other areas.

The first category given was ability with feet, which is a tribute that has become more necessary for goalkeepers in recent times in comparison to how it was in the past.

Alisson picked out Brazil team-mate and Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson as the king of ball-playing, ahead of himself, with the 31-year-old also comfortable playing the ball out from the back.

Ederson was one of the first goalkeepers that became known for their ball-playing ability, with the Brazilian joining Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City early in the Spaniard’s reign when he binned Joe Hart and Claudio Bravo.

Regarding diving, Alisson picked himself for the first time, saying: ‘No, I’m not going to talk about myself,’ before conceding: ‘OK, I’ll put it in then, at the top.’

When it came to one-on-one shot-stopping, Alisson said: ‘I have to put it in again, come on,’ referring to himself. And then when asked about reflexes, he replied: ‘Me again, I’m not kidding.’

He then said of another player: ‘I think he’s a really good guy. In the matter of reflexes, [Jan] Oblak.’

Finally, Alisson was asked about positioning, and gave his Liverpool and Brazil goalkeeping coach Claudio Taffarel as the answer.

Taffarel, now 57, played for the likes of Inter Milan and Galatasaray in a stellar career, which saw him also make over 100 appearances for Brazil and lift the 1994 World Cup and 1987 and 1989 Copa America titles.
