Alisson Lauds Compatriot Firmino
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has described his club and international teammate Roberto Firmino as “one of the most important players in our team.”
Firmino grabbed the winner in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Tottenham and the Reds and Seleção goalkeeper was quick to heap praise on the striker.
“Bobby is one of the most important players in our team – and we have a lot. I think everybody is important but Bobby not only scores when we need him, he makes the team play, he drops to play from behind.
“This is a good thing and it is something that he likes to do, he likes to help, and I’m really happy that he scored because a striker needs to score to stay confident and he is helping us with the goals.
“When we had opportunities to attack [against Spurs], Bobby scored, we had some good chances and their goalkeeper did a good job. I think it was sufficient to get the three points and we are happy for that.”
