Alisson praised Robert Firmino after the forward netted the winning ball against Flamengo in the Club World Cup Final on Saturday.
“We know and he knows how important he is for the team. And we value him a lot. I think he is one of the most important players for us,” the goalkeeper said.
“He doesn’t just score, but he assists too. He makes the team play from behind, he helps us a lot and makes a difference.
“We are really happy and I am really happy that he could score, it’s important for a striker to score and I’m really happy for everybody and this title.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp also praised Firmino for his goal, saying it was especially meaningful for a Brazilian to score the winner against a Brazilian side.
“I couldn’t be more happy for him that he could score that goal because before the game we spoke about a lot about what this competition means to Brazil, to South American people and especially Brazilian people,” Klopp said.
“And we have two Brazilians and he’s one of them. It means the world to him and it helped us a lot. On top of that, it was a sensational goal, completely calm. You see the last goal helped obviously to bring these things back and I’m really, really delighted for him.”
However, Liverpool can’t exactly celebrate their win much – they’re facing Leceister City on Thursday.
