Alisson Praises ‘Special Guy’ Adrian
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has praised his understudy Adrian following Brazilian’s injury lay-off with a calf problem.
Alisson tore a calf muscle on the opening day of the season against Norwich and summer signing Adrian has taken his place in goal ever since.
The Brazilian was full of praise for the performances of his deputy, “I think the boys are doing very well, all the team [and] Adrian especially,” Alisson said.
“He’s a special guy who came late in the season, he just came and shows everyone his value, not just as a player but as a person and that is the more important thing.
“He is doing very well on the pitch. I have peace to recover in a proper way so it’s better for everyone.
You can see that [he has settled in well] on the pitch, you know a player just can play as he is playing if you are set up with the place, with the people, if you are happy here and you can see he is very happy here.
“He helped us to win a title already, he is helping us a lot in the games to win points. That is the most important thing for us in the season to achieve our goals.”
