Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Allison can go on to become the club’s best goalie ever, John Barnes has said. He recently revealed that Allison is definitely up there with goalkeepers Ray Clemence and Bruce Grobbelaar at LFC.
According to him, Alisson has only been with Liverpool for two-and-a-half years, but he has already proved to be a fantastic signing from Roma.
He added that the only way Allison will miss out on being the club’s best goalie ever is if he quits the club anytime soon.
His words, “I’d definitely say he can be up there with Ray Clemence and Bruce Grobbelaar as Liverpool’s best-ever goalkeeper.”
“However, if he leaves the club next year, then things would be different. At the end of the day, you judge people in terms of the legacy and what they leave behind and the impact they’ve had on the team at the end of their careers.”
“Alisson has only been with Liverpool for two-and-a-half years and he’s done fantastically well so if he stays and continues to play as well as he has to date, then I wouldn’t be surprised if he becomes Liverpool’s best-ever goalkeeper.”
On Allison being the best in the world, “Yes – I’d definitely say so,”
“Of course Ederson at Manchester City is right up there too. But Alisson is a fantastic goalkeeper and apart from being great he also brings a much-needed calmness to the team and I think that we saw it when himself and [Virgil] van Dijk came to the club, how everything just settled down and calmed down.”
“And we’ve seen even with Van Dijk playing, but when Alisson doesn’t play, then maybe the belief isn’t necessarily there. So I think that over the last three years, himself and Van Dijk have been the two most important signings. Yes, [Mohamed] Salah’s been scoring goals, but the way he plays with those two has been fantastic.”
