Alisson versus Ederson, who is the better goalie
Liverpool FC - Alisson's tears and the "hand of God": Greetings to the dead dad
First the goal, then the tears: Goalkeeper Alisson gives Liverpool FC a highly emotional victory - and lets Jürgen Klopp hope for a happy ending to his hardest season with the Reds.
Match winner Alisson Becker laid his head on Jürgen Klopp's shoulder and cried unrestrainedly. His last-minute goal in luck, plus the painful memories of his father's recent accidental death - the Liverpool goalkeeper was simply overwhelmed by the emotional chaos. "I hope he was there and saw it," said Alisson, still troubled after the tearful hug with his coach, about dad Jose Agostinho.
Father Becker drowned in February not far from his vacation spot in Lavras do Sul, southern Brazil, at the age of 57. He was "too emotional" to talk about this stroke of fate, said Alisson after his header to 2-1 (1-1) at West Bromwich Albion, the first competitive goal by a goalkeeper in the 129-year history of the Liverpool club: "Football is mine Life. I've played with my father for as long as I can remember ... "
And so after his goal (90th + 5) he pointed both index fingers in greeting into the rainy sky over West Bromwich. "I couldn't be happier," said Alisson when he had recovered a little. "You can't explain some things," he said about a Premier League goalkeeper's sixth goal and the first with his head, "you can't explain." Or is it? "The only reason is God," said Alisson, laughing, "he put his hand on my head. I feel blessed."
Thiago on Alisson: timing better than Robert Lewandowski
For Klopp it was a "Worldie", ie a goal in the world class category, and "the best I have ever seen from a goalkeeper". In his opinion, "no one better" could have kept Liverpool's Champions League dreams alive.
"He's our boy, our brother," said Klopp solemnly, "a wonderful person, funny and clever - just a great guy." When the 28-year-old mourned his father, "we all suffered with him".
The joy was all the greater. In the cabin, Alisson's "unbelievable" hussar piece ran up and down, according to Klopp, Thiago said of the "beloved" goalkeeper that he hadn't even seen such a timing with Robert Lewandowski.
The telegraph wrote of the "Wonderland Winner" who Daily Star saw "Ali's K.o.", and the Mirror felt reminded of a German tennis hero: "Game, Set and Match Becker!"
This "perfect moment", said Klopp, was "the highlight" of a very difficult season - which could now have an unexpected happy ending. If the table third Leicester City (66 points) scores on Tuesday (9.15 p.m.) at fourth Chelsea FC (64) around Thomas Tuchel, Liverpool (63) two wins in Burnley and against Crystal Palace are enough for the premier class.
"I hope," said Alisson, "that I don't have to do this a few more times." Twice would be enough.
