Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has revealed the biggest mistake of Andre Onana since his move to Manchester United. Alisson sent a message to Onana while speaking to Liverpool’s official website. Onana secured a move from Inter Milan for a fee of £47.2 million. However, the Cameroonian is having a very tough start to his life at Manchester. His positioning is questioned many times by the critics and pundits. Now, Becker has told him that saving goals is still the most important aspect of a keeper instead of being good at feet.
“Still saving goals. Of course, I think you see goalkeepers playing more with their feet from the back and you see teams playing more with their feet from the back, not only kicking long balls.
“That affects our position a little bit, but I don’t think it changed too much. We just improved things because of the necessity of what football is asking for. Football today is asking for a team who builds up.”
“The goalkeeper needs to play, to be good with his feet, but the main part is making saves and doing what a goalkeeper does – leading the team, claiming crosses. So I think playing with your feet is more an extra thing than the main thing for a goalkeeper.
“Every situation is different and I don’t do the same things all the time. I think this makes things difficult for the striker because if they know how I react in every situation they can just do something different. I try not to do predictable things and every situation and save is unique.”
Alisson has been one of the best goalkeepers in the world in the past few years saving Liverpool at multiple occasions.
