Liverpool did some astute business last year when they landed Virgil Van Dijk and Alisson in the space of 6 months.
Both signings have had a massive impact at the club with Alisson breaking all records for goalkeepers to earn 4 different golden gloves in 4 tournaments where he participated whereas Van Dijk became the first defender since Cannavaro almost 15 years back to be involved in a Ballon d’Or race.
So who out of the two has been a better player? Gary Neville definitely has an opinion.
He said: “I think Alisson has made Liverpool win the League.
“When people talk about van Dijk being the missing piece, I think that there is an element of that.
“But when I go back to two years or three years ago, I was very critical of the goalkeepers that were at Liverpool.
“I said I felt that they would never win the League while the current goalkeeper was in position.
“Jurgen Klopp came for me, I don’t know whether he was angry with me but he certainly had a go at me in the media.
“But soon as Allison came – I saw it at Manchester United with Schmeichel then I saw it in that next spell where we had greatness with Van Der Sar.
“Once your goalkeeper is calm, authoritative, saves most shots on his goal, gives confidence to the rest of the team, the impact of that is absolutely incredible.”
