Liverpool Fans Clamour For Alisson's Lucky Alloy Kit After Champions League Triumph Over Barcelona
Liverpool's amazing fightback to knock Barcelona out of the Champions League on Tuesday was one of the greatest nights in the history of Europe's premier club competition.
Few people gave Jurgen Klopp's men any chance of overturning a 3-0 deficit from the first leg especially as Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino were missing through injury.
But Liverpool produced a stunning performance to win 4-0 and sent Barca crashing out of the competition many expected them to win.
Fans bought up newspapers chronicling their famous win on Wednesday morning but there's one souvenir which could prove even more popular. Yesterday, Liverpool announced their keeper Alisson would be wearing an "alloy" kit because his regular kits clashed with the officials and Barcelona's bright yellow away kit.
This simple, silver grey one-off kit was worn to great effect by the Brazillian stopper who defied the attacking menace of Lionel Messi et al. The club tweeted yesterday that this kit would not be available to buy but many are hoping the significance of the night could persuade New Balance to make the kit for fans to buy.
UEFA had ruled that Alisson's usual choices of yellow, green or pink would clash. But could Alisson have won Liverpool's away outfield kit - which is grey with red trim - but as a goalkeeper?
One feels that this alloy kit is destined to end up in the Liverpool souvenir shops and act as a reminder of a magical night at Anfield. Some fans have been tweeting that they'd love the chance to get a replica of the kit - one wonders if it will be worn in the Madrid final against either Ajax or Tottenham Hotspur.
