Liverpool’s goalkeeper Alisson Becker has only lost one game at Anfield. That was the game against Liverpool 27 months ago as a goalkeeper for Roma.
Liverpool has gotten eyes on Becker before he arrived at Anfield with Roma in the semi-final of the champions league in 2018. But the Brazilian keeper conceded five goals in the first leg of the competition against Liverpool after the game ended in 5-2. He thought his chances of becoming a goalkeeper for the reds were over. Even if he didn’t make any mistakes for the goals.
Later during the summer transfer window, he completed a record fee signing of £70 million to Anfield after spending two years at the Serie-A club. He finished second on the Serie-A table in his first campaign and reached the semifinal of the champions league in the second season. To say in short words, it has been fortune well spent.
Alisson Becker shared emotional word after leaving Roma
Alisson shared emotional words when left Roma for Liverpool. He said, “Leaving Rome was hard, I cried a lot with my wife. It’s right that I am been honest about it. I made the decision to move to Liverpool but my heart was heavy and full of tears. I spent two years playing in Italy, my daughter was born there and I have a lot of friends apart from football.
Alisson kept the most clean-sheet in the league last season as Liverpool conceded fewer goals in the premier league. They missed out on the title with just a single point. However, Becker’s performance saw the clinched the European title for the sixth time. Regardless of the injury, he got at the beginning of the league that made him miss out on seven of Liverpool’s league matches. He still retains the lead for his clean sheets once again.
In the absence of Alisson, Liverpool strived to keep clean sheets with Adrian replacing becker. Liverpool has only been able to keep two clean sheets in eleven matches when Adrian was the goalkeeper. Aside from that, Liverpool conceded three goals against Athletico Madrid in the champions league round of 16. The game saw the reds kicked out of the competition after Athletico won the game at home and away. If Alisson had been in the match Klopp’s team would be in the quarter-final of the competition.
Currently, Liverpool is pretty difficult to beat with Becker in the post, especially at home.
