SportsTalk December 18th: Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson recently accepted an exclusive interview with the media and talked about his current career situation, the evolution of the goalkeeper position and other topics.
“I feel that I am still in very good shape and I am making progress as much as possible every year. As a goalkeeper, I have grown from a very young age I started playing in the first team when I was 21 or 22 years old. It has been 10 years now, but for a goalkeeper, 31 is still very young. If you look at the current goalkeepers, they will continue to play until 38, 39 years old, sometimes beyond that. So, I think I’m at the highest point of my career right now, my physical condition, my experience, my desire to continue to do things well, my desire A strong desire to keep improving has been incorporated into me and I am very happy with my performance on the field and the way I play, but I also want to continue to improve, and that means maintaining consistency.”
“I think that starting from Neuer, the goalkeeper situation has changed. In the past, you can see many goalkeepers with good footwork, such as Barcelona’s Bal Des, and Neuer is a goalkeeper who is more active on the field and sweeps behind the defense. Ederson, me, many goalkeepers have this characteristic. I think the biggest difference now is the coaches I hope to be able to organize the offense from the goalkeeper, not just long passes and two points. This is a problem you have to solve now. You must choose a goalkeeper with the ability to pass.But I also think that, as I said before That said, the goalkeeper’s main task is to save the ball. When you stand between the goalposts, you have to make the team feel safe. If you still have good footwork, then of course it’s better, but if you can’t do that, then maybe The team needs to adapt, or find a more capable person.“
“My opinion of myself and my Just like when I first joined Liverpool, I know how I do things. I am a person who likes to talk one-on-one and I can have good one-on-one conversations with my teammates when needed. At this club, the captain The armband means a lot. Not only on the field, but also off the field. It has a lot of responsibilities.For the fans, you became a symbol. We have many leaders, not just the captain and important players, such as Henderson, Milner, myself, Van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Salah, many players have played the role of leaders, this is the foundation of our team, many leaders Everyone is moving in the same direction and we are doing that now, under the leadership of the head coach, captain Virgil van Dijk and Alexander-Arnold. ”
“The departure of Firmino and Fabinho in the summer is a huge loss, but so far, all the new signings have The players all performed well and did their job. And we South Americans have very good relations with each other. Although we are from different countries, our cultures are very similar. I drink yerba mate, as does Nunez and McAllister, among many other things. We play for our respective national teams and are strong competitors to each other, but we are good teammates and friends at the club. I saw desire and passion from Nunez, McAllister, Dias, they all wanted to do great things for this club, and the environment and atmosphere created by the other players helped them get that. Passion. ”
