Reina: Alisson is a "great goalkeeper in a club that I love" - Jloaded.com

Pepe Reina has thrown his backing behind Alisson Becker as the Brazilian seeks to break his shut-out record at Liverpool.
If Alisson keeps one more clean sheet this season he’ll top Reina’s record of 20 in one season, set in 2005/06 and 2008/09.
The Spanish keeper, however, is eager to see the No.13 achieve his goal.


“I’m fancying him to do it,” he said.
“Although, he’s played more games than because I think I played 32 or 33 games to complete 20 clean sheets and he’s played 36!
“But still it’s a great achievement. I’m looking forward to [him breaking the record]. If it’s Saturday against Newcastle, good. If it’s the last game of the league, even better if that means Liverpool is the Premier League champion.
“It’s the goalkeepers’ union as we say. We have mutual respect for each other and I admire him because he’s not just a goalkeeper, but a great goalkeeper in a club that I love.”
He added: “I think he’s up there with the best in this moment. I think he’s a very good ‘keeper and he managed to dominate the different areas of the goalkeeping role.
“The numbers are there, the performances are there and he’s proved himself in his first season in England. It is not easy to be one of the best from the beginning.
“It’s a mix of things – he’s quick, he’s strong, he has the ability to dominate the game with his vision.
“The defence, I think, they feel that he’s a big figure behind them.”
