Lonergan lauds ‘flawless’ Liverpool keeper Alisson

Andy Lonergan has described former Liverpool teammate, Alisson Becker, as the best goalkeeper in world football.

33-year-old Lonergan had the pleasure of working with the Brazilian every day in training this season.

Having been released by the club, Lonergan has reflected on working with the 27-year-old.

“We’ve not had everyone fit all season, it’s only recently we’ve had all four goalkeepers, first-team goalkeepers, training together,” Lonergan told Liverpool Echo.

“It’s been brilliant, it’s the best group I’ve been part of. Obviously talent-wise but as guys as well.

“It’s common for people to say, ‘The goalie had nothing to do,’ but Alisson makes it that way. The way he controls his defence.

“The hardest thing for a goalkeeper is having nothing to do because your lesser goalkeepers will start looking for stuff, coming out for balls aren’t theirs, trying to make an impact on the game, but Ali is flawless. He is by far the best goalkeeper in the world and I won’t have anyone ever tell me any differently.”
