Former Reds striker, John Aldridge is pleased to see a commanding Brazilian goalkeeper back between the sticks, with Jurgen Klopp now boasting strength in depth.
Liverpool made the right decision in throwing “best goalkeeper in the world” Alisson straight back into their starting XI, says John Aldridge.
The former Reds striker told the Liverpool Echo on the back of a 1-1 draw away at Manchester United: “Liverpool will be delighted to have Alisson back in goal after his absence from the side since the opening day of the Premier League season but that’s no slight on Adrian.
“I think it was the correct decision to put Alisson straight back in, no matter how well Adrian had done deputising for him.
“He’s our No.1 and the best goalkeeper in the world.
“Adrian has been brilliant. Everyone respects him and thanks him for what he’s done. He’ll probably play against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup.
“In terms of strength in depth, we’ve probably got two goalkeepers now possessing the kind of calibre we’ve never had before.
“They’re back-to-back goalkeepers you can depend on.
“Adrian has proven that he’d be No.1 at most other teams in the Premier League but we’ve got him as back-up.
“He’ll probably want to play more games but I hope Liverpool have endeared themselves to him.
“I think he’s seen how big the club is and how great they are and he’ll want to stay.”
