We know how gifted Brazilians are with a light touch, but how many goalkeepers in world football can pull off the kind of moves that are second-nature to Alisson Becker?
As the Reds separated off into rondos for training, John Achterberg set up a drill for Liverpool’s shotstoppers, with the No.1 showing off some quick feet to take the ball past the coach’s press.
The former Roma man has toned down such risk-taking during competitive matches, after being dispossessed two seasons ago following an ill-advised attempt to dribble out from the back against Leicester.
It’s great to see that the 28-year-old hasn’t lost any of his original flair, and even if he’s been advised by Klopp to play a bit safer once the whistle goes, it’s important that the keeper has the technical ability to get himself out of tough situations, if the need calls for it.
