Mignolet Hails Working Relationship With Alisson
Liverpool’s reserve goalkeeper Simon Mignolet says he has formed an excellent working relationship with number 1 goalkeeper Alisson.
The Brazilian joined the club from Roma during the summer in a huge money deal, with Mignolet as his back up.
The Belgian says he and Alisson have an excellent working relationship on the training ground and that they learn from one another.
“Ali and I work well together. We have a very good relationship. I’ve picked up a few things from him and he’s picked up a few things from me,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
“I’ve been playing in the Premier League for 10 years now and certain things are different here compared to abroad. He asks me some questions and I try to answer them.
“He’s very calm on the ball and I try to replicate that. I think I showed it in the FA Cup game against Wolves. We can bounce off each other and learn off each other.
“I respect him, not just for the player he is, but also for the person he is. I can learn Spanish from him too which is another benefit!”
