Alisson hails ‘tremendously intelligent manager’ Klopp

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has been discussing the role that Jurgen Klopp played in him deciding to move to Anfield from Roma for £67 million earlier this summer.

The Brazil number one has impressed during Liverpool’s opening three Premier League games, with the 25-year-old yet to concede a goal in English football.

Alisson has been opening up about how happy he is at Anfield and what it is like to work with Klopp.

“He is a person who gives himself 100 percent to what he is doing,” Alisson told ESPN Brazil.

“The chat I had with him is one of the things that left me more calm.

“He showed his interest in having me, not only the club’s interest but also his. It was a long interview despite my staggered English, but we understood each other well.

“He told me about how he works, how I would fit into the squad, how I also could grow personally here. He told me a little bit about the project – a project with a winning mindset.

“Now that I am inside I am aware that everything he told me is a reality. It is a club that treats you like a family, even the fans. They are very warm; they are famous for it around the whole world. It is a very big club.

“I was very well received by my teammates and by Klopp. He also treats the players really well off the pitch. On the pitch, he is also a tremendously intelligent manager.

“He prepares the game in a very precise way during the week, placing all players on the pitch to make us aware of what we are going to find on the pitch and also giving resources about the offensive and defensive movements.”
