‘Fans With Heart Problems Have To Be Careful’ Jokes Alisson
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson arrived at Anfield with a reputation for being comfortable with the ball at his feet. He wowed fans by chipping the ball over the head of a Brighton attacker last weekend.
The goalkeeper is renowned for his footwork as much as his glovemanship and the Brazilian joked that Liverpool fans can look forward to some heart stopping moments. “It is already calculated. I take risks,” he told ESPN Brasil.
“Fans with heart problems have to be careful! But on the pitch, as I said before, I do not try to make of fun of a rival. It’s not to show that I can do this or that, but to help the team. It is to achieve targets.
“I make a dribble or a simple pass, knowing that if I lose the ball near the area the opponent can score. I am aware of what I do on the pitch, but I always do it to help the team. That’s why occasionally I also boot the ball into the stands
Alisson also paid tribute to how the coach and players have smoothed his acclimatisation. “I was very well received by my teammates and by Klopp. He also treats the players really well off the pitch. On the pitch, he is also a tremendously intelligent manager.
“He prepares the game in a very precise way during the week, placing all players on the pitch to make us aware of what we are going to find on the pitch and also giving resources about the offensive and defensive movements.”
