'It's still amazing'; Joel Matip hasn't grown tired of 'complete' Alisson

Joel Matip is full of praise for teammate Alisson Becker. The goalkeeper closes in on 100 games for Liverpool since his 2018 arrival.

Joel Matip certainly hasn’t grown tired of watching Alisson Becker. The goalkeeper has firmly established himself as one of the world’s best – but still amazes his teammate.

And as Alisson closes in on 100 games in Red, Matip told of his admiration for the Brazilian.

“As a person first, he is amazing,” said Matip. “He is kind and everybody knows he is the complete goalkeeper.

“I am always amazed by what he does with the ball and against the ball. Sometimes I can see it from close up but it’s still amazing.”

What RTK has to say

Matip has played with Alisson for over two years now, of course, winning top honours with Liverpool. So it does say a lot that the goalkeeper still amazes him.

After all, he sees it every single day in training, as well as in games.

But it just goes to show how special a player Alisson is. He’s quickly established himself as one of the world’s elite goalkeepers – arguably the outright best around, in fact.

Liverpool are fantastically fortunate to have players like this at the club, in every area of the pitch, too. There’s no easier way to win that to fill your squad with players capable of things that few others are.

Alisson is firmly in that bracket. He can do things that amaze even those at the top level – and that makes him one of the most special people in the game.
