Astonishing Alisson record suggests he’s on course to become a goalkeeping legend

Posted by

Alisson Becker had an incredible first season at Liverpool as he helped the Reds secure their first – and sixth overall – Champions League title in 14 years.

Brazil are up against Peru in the final of the 2019 Copa America, and are favourites to lift the coveted trophy on Sunday in what would be a perfect end to the season for Ali.

Questions were asked of the goalkeeper when he signed for the Reds for just under £70million – the most expensive stopper of all time, before Kepa signed for Chelsea in the same window.

He answered his critics on the field – the Brazilian kept 21 clean sheets in the Premier League and was awarded the Golden Glove for his efforts.

Alisson also kept the most amount of clean sheets in the Champions League, and is the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets in the Copa America (before the competition is even completed).

That’s three ‘Golden Gloves’. The Reds stopper is now the first goalkeeper in the history of the game to be the best in three competitions in a single campaign.

For nine games on the spin now, he’s kept only clean sheets. If he continues this kind of form, he may very well go down as one of the greatest the game has ever seen.
