Gigi Buffon has praised Liverpool stopper Alisson, calling him one of the best players in the world in his position as the two prepare to face off in Paris on Wednesday night.
According to The Metro, Buffon said: “Alisson is everything a modern goalkeeper needs to be.
“Liverpool have conceded very few goals this season. He might be a new name for those in England but for me – it is no surprise. I am a big admirer.
“He is comfortable with the ball, he is an excellent shot stopper and I see that he gives confidence to his defence.
“He is one of the top three goalkeepers in the world right now and has everything to go on and be a great of his position.”
Alisson has certainly made a huge difference to the Reds’ backline this season – and he’ll be needed tonight against Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.
We couldn’t be happier with him – Buffon’s comments hit the nail on the head.
