Best Goalkeeper of the English Premier League so far, the Brazilian Alisson Becker made it clear why he chose to go to Liverpool. an interview with the English magazine “Four Four Two”, the goalkeeper said that the Reds’ victorious history and the opportunity to win the Champions were essential factors to make the transfer possible, even if Chelsea were also watching him.
– I chose Liverpool for the same reasons I went to Rome when I left Brazil (in 2016): I thought it would be the best choice for my career. Chelsea had changed coach (Conte’s departure and Sarri’s arrival) and they were not going to play for Champions this season. I have also always admired the history of Liverpool, a team with five European titles in the gallery. I’m working hard to win the Champions League trophy with the Reds, “he said.
Okay, but… Dear Alisson, we all know you’re trying not to mention the 5 goals you conceded at Anfield versus Liverpool on the UEFA Champions League Semi-Finals last season, with Roma. Fairplay though. This season, you have the chance to make your dream come true with the Reds, so fight for it! – He also talked about it, curiously, using the same words. I wonder why…
– Life is fighting for dreams, and I dream of a Champions title” added Alisson.
In addition to wanting to shine in the European competition, Alisson and Liverpool are also eyeing the English title. The Reds are the current leaders of the Premier League, with a four-point advantage over Manchester City. However, not everything is that good for the English giants right now, as the Reds come from a negative streak of 2 defeats in a row.
Alisson and Virgil van Dijk have improved Liverpool’s defense from water to wine and even the numbers show that. Despite having conceded 2 on the defeat against Man City on the last Matchday in the Premier League, Alisson, van Dijk, Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino, Sadio Mane and Klopp’s side, count with the best defense ever in the Premier League so far, with only 10 goals conceded in 21 matches.
You guys have everything to “Conquer all of Europe” this season.
