Brazilian goalkeeper believes he’s a consistent player, despite woeful error against Leicester City
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has insisted he’s the right man for Liverpool having replaced error-prone predecessors Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.
The £67million summer signing has already made one blunder in the Premier League but believes you won’t see many more as it’s in his style to keep it simple.
The Brazilian has rarely been tested with the Red conceded an average of just 8.2 shots per game, the third best record in the division.
But believes his penchant for doing the easy things rather than making a show of his shot-stopping ability has allowed him to flourish, so far.
And while he did make a mistake against Leicester City, although it didn’t stop Liverpool from claiming a win, he revealed he’s matured in the way he deals with these moments.
“I’ve locked myself in my room in the past but I don’t do that anymore!’ he told the Daily Mail.
“I am more mature today so I deal better with the mistakes than the many times when I locked myself away and wanted to be alone. But if you look at my history, I’m not somebody who makes many mistakes.
“My game is characterised by consistency and that is what has brought me to Liverpool and helped me grow and develop. I make simple saves: they are not to show off or Hollywood saves for the camera. I like to keep it simple. Yes, I’m working on playing with my feet so I take risks.
“I wait for options, hoping that a space for a pass will appear at the last moment. That’s what happened at Leicester game.
“The ball held up in the grass and, if it hadn’t, I think I would have made a successful dribble. I know now I should have kicked the ball into the stands.”
