Liverpool’s goalkeeping coach, John Achterberg, has given an update on Alisson Becker’s return to the first-team, after the Brazilian suffered an injury early in the season.
Alisson was incredibly important for Liverpool last season, and played a big part in their Champions League triumph.
In fact, he received the best goalkeeper of the Champions League season award recently.
However, it hasn’t been great for Alisson of late.
That’s because the Brazilian had to be substituted in Liverpool’s opening game of the Premier League season against Norwich.
Alisson was forced off with an injury and replaced by summer signing Adrian, who has since been handed a big run of games due to the former Roma man’s problem.
Now, Liverpool’s goalkeeping coach, John Achterberg, has been talking about Alisson’s return to fitness.
Brazilian returns to training
Speaking on Wednesday, Achterberg revealed that Alisson is back in training, doing some catching and footwork drills.
“In the last few days, he has been out on the pitch to do some catching and footwork, as well as small passing drills,” Achterberg explained, as quoted by the Mirror.
“He has made steady progress. It needs time and we cannot look too far ahead, so we take each day as it comes, see how he feels, and then make progress from that.”
The good news for Liverpool fans is that Alisson is back in training, but, judging by Achterberg’s comments, the club will be taking it slowly in terms of his involvement.
