Stan Collymore: What I really think about new Liverpool FC signing
The Liverpool FC legend is confident that Alisson Becker will only get better at the Anfield outfit
Stan Collymore is confident that Alisson Becker will only get better at Liverpool FC.
The Reds signed the Brazil international in a £67m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2018 summer transfer window.
Jurgen Klopp signed Alisson to strengthen what has been an area of weakness for the Reds over the past few seasons.
Indeed, Liverpool FC have lacked a world class goalkeeper since his predecessor Brendan Rodgers sanctioned Pepe Reina’s exit in 2013.
Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet have both had stints as Liverpool FC’s number one goalkeeper but the German and Belgian have struggled to impress.
Liverpool FC have made a promising start to the Premier League season with Alisson in between the sticks.
Indeed, the Reds have scored seven goals and have kept three clean sheets in their opening three Premier League fixtures.
Alisson will face sterner tests against Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur in their next two outings.
Former Liverpool FC striker Collymore is impressed with Alisson’s start to his Liverpool FC career.
“Alisson is the best goalkeeper Liverpool have had since the first two years of Pepe Reina so that is one gap plugged and he will get better,” Collymore told the Daily Mirror.
“He is comfortable on the ball, pings passes left, right and centre. Yes he will get caught out once or twice this season but he will give much more than he takes.”
Liverpool FC are sitting at the top of the Premier League table ahead of Tottenham and Chelsea FC on goal difference.
The Reds finished in fourth spot in the Premier League last term.
