Alisson Becker: Liverpool’s Money Well Spent

-

Yesterday, Liverpool beat Brighton 1-0; earning three points and rising to the top of the Premier League. Although Mohamed Salah scored the only goal, truth be told, if it wasn’t for Alisson Becker’s exceptional performance, Liverpool might not have won the match at all.

Before the season started, Liverpool had signed the 25-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper for 75 million euros, making him the most expensive goalkeeper in history. Becker had already been performing exceptionally with Roma, which earned him great attention from Premier League football clubs as Chelsea and Liverpool.

Fans have been comparing him to the recently retired Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and calling him the goalkeeper of the future. He was already turning heads in Roma and in the 2018 World Cup when he played for the national Brazilian team.

The decision to sign him came after the embarrassing performance of Liverpool’s former goalkeeper Loris Karius, who is now playing for Besiktas as a loan; his mistakes in the final match of the UEFA Champions League cost them the game. Although it was later reported that Karius had suffered a concussion after colliding with Sergio Ramos during the match, the team realized it was time for some changes.

With people criticizing the transfer and saying that this money should be spent on goal scorers rather than goalkeepers, Becker has proved them wrong; within the first week of the season he became one of the main reasons behind his team’s triumphs. He also seems to have earned Jurgen Klopp’s support and the acceptance of Liverpool fans.

It’s clear now that Liverpool knows which players to bid on, especially from Roma. With all its recent deals including Salah, Naby Keita, and Becker, not only is the team on the right track; its leaders know exactly what they’re doing and where they’re going.
