Liverpool’s Alisson expected to be ‘perfect’ after £65m move

Alisson moves to Liverpool

After Loris Karius’s poor display in the 2018 Champions League final, it was pretty clear Liverpool needed a new keeper if they wanted to compete among the world’s elite.

That is exactly what Liverpool did during the 2018 summer transfer window.

Liverpool would sign Alisson from Serie A outfit, AS Roma.

Alisson moved to Liverpool for what was, at the time, a world record fee for a keeper, costing Jurgen Klopp’s side a whopping £65m.

Since moving to Anfield, Alisson has proven to be a very good buy.

The Brazilian has played all 12 of Liverpool’s Premier League games this season and has kept an impressive seven clean sheets.

Liverpool also have the joint best defence in the league, along with Manchester City.

However, given his hefty price tag, Alisson is under constant scrutiny for any mistake he makes.

For example, Alisson made a mistake vs Leicester City that lead to the Foxes scoring, which he was heavily scrutinised for.

The Brazilian also found himself under attack from some fans as Liverpool lost 2-0 to Red Star Belgrade.

Liverpool’s number one is currently on international duty with Brazil and has been speaking about how his price tag makes everyone think he should be perfect.

‘I’m working to be perfect, I’m working to be better’

When speaking about his move to Liverpool, Alisson stated:

“I came here for a high price and some people expect to me to be perfect. It is not easy, but I’m trying.

“It is really early to say if I’m satisfied with how I’m playing, but I’m working to be perfect, I’m working to be better.

“I am really, really happy with my move to the Premier League. I’m working really hard to help Liverpool to achieve their goals and also for the Brazil national team.”
