The 53-year-old said: ‘Alisson performs heroics in goal, but every four or five games he has a bit of a howler.

‘Liverpool have weak points, every team does’.

It’s true that our No.1 has made mistakes during his three-and-a-half years at Anfield but the number is probably four or five and certainly not ‘every four or five games’, as expressed by the former West Ham man.

The Italian may be trying to encourage supporters of Inter Milan with this line but it simply isn’t true, our Brazilian stopper has consistently been one of our best players.

It’s highly unlikely that the 29-year-old will take much notice from a man who won one league title and never clinched the Champions League in his career but if he has seen it, it’ll surely just provide extra motivation to prove him wrong.
