Liverpool Goalkeeper Alisson Pulls Off Series Of Stunning Saves In Training
Alisson Becker has made a smooth introduction to life in the Anfield nets and his club has shared a video of the hard work he puts in behind the scenes on social media to a warm reception from fans.
The Brazilian stopper is filmed showing those feline qualities he possesses, bounding about and keeping shot after shot out of the net in a training exercise.
Whatever it is the former Roma man, who joined in what was then a world record fee for a goalkeeper this summer, has kept a remarkable six clean sheets in his ten league appearances so far this season, conceding just a single goal in those four games that he didn’t keep the opposition out.
The bit of flash that the newly-minted fans favourite shows in this video is at odds with his own description of his game as being all about substance over style.
“My game is characterised by consistency and that is what has brought me to Liverpool and helped me develop,” he said. “I like to make simple saves. I don’t make saves for the camera. If the ball is in front of me I won’t dive. If it’s to the side of me I will dive to the side. I like to keep it simple. My saves are not to show off or Hollywood saves for the camera.”
Regardless of how he wants to manage it, if he keeps leaving his net un-rippled time and again as the season continues his stock among the Anfield faithful is only likely to rise.
