Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has explained that he has become a better goalkeeper since joining the Reds in the summer.

Alisson Becker joined Liverpool from AS Roma with a world-class fee of about £68 million and has since settled to become one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

According to the Brazilian, he has been able to settle well at the Merseyside club with the help of the goalkeeper John Achterberg who has impacted his experience and knowledge in him.

Achterberg joined Liverpool in 2009 after hanging his boot from professional and active football.

Alisson stated that he is now calm and relax on the pitch by the help of the goalkeeper trainer as he has learnt a lot on how to improve on the pitch.

He added that the relationship between himself and the goalkeeper coach has been in such a way that they learn from each other and they have both been developing in training.

Meanwhile, he praised second choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet for helping him settle also in the team having been around for a while.

However, Alisson has been rated as one of the best goalkeepers in Europe having conceded few goals so far this season.
