Former Liverpool stopper backs big money bill for Alisson Becker

Timothy Aiyeku



It is no longer news that Liverpool stopper Alisson Becker is one of the most expensive goalkeepers in the Premier League after joining the Anfield from the Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma for a fee of about £65 million.

This has drawn a number of criticisms from pundits that are of the opinion that the amount invested in the Brazilian stopper is on the high side.

But Alisson Becker has been backed by former Liverpool stopper Sander Westerveld, stressing that his quality deserves to earn such a billing form the Reds team.

He noted that Alisson Becker is a good goalkeeper who has his style like Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer who has all the qualities that are needed in a shot-stopper.

The Liverpool legend stated that even if a mistake is made by the Brazilian, there are still chances that the Reds team will end up winning the game because he would have saved a lot of goals.

He has therefore rated Alisson Becker as one of the two best goalkeepers in the world to have helped the stability in the Liverpool defence.

However, there is no doubt that Liverpool has one of the best defence in the league as they have conceded lesser goals.
