John Barnes rated Alisson as capable of surpassing legends such as Ray Clemence and Bruce Grobbelaar to become the best goalkeeper in Liverpool history.

Alisson just extended his contract with Liverpool until 2027 earlier this August. Joining Anfield from AS Roma in 2018, the Brazilian goalkeeper has overcome the weakness of the team, becoming their reliable stop.

With Alisson’s excellence, Liverpool won the Champions League and Premier League respectively. To date, the 28-year-old player has made 131 appearances for the “Red Brigade”. Liverpool legend John Barnes has a lot of expectations for Alisson:

Goal quoted the 57-year-old former player: “I’m sure Alisson is in the same position as the best goalkeepers in Liverpool history like Ray Clemence and Bruce Grobbelaar. However, if he leaves the club soon, things will be different.”

“Ultimately, you judge the players based on what they left behind and the impact on the team at the end of their careers. Alisson has only been with Liverpool for three and a half years and has performed very well.

“If Alisson stays and continues to play as well as he is, I wouldn’t be surprised if he becomes the best goalkeeper in Liverpool’s history.”

Alisson and Liverpool defeated Norwich 3-0 right away in the opening round of the Premier League. That match, the former Roma member continued to make impressive saves. Barnes believes Alisson deserves the title of the best goalkeeper in the world right now.

The former Liverpool midfielder added: “I’m sure Alisson is the number one goalkeeper right now. Of course Ederson at Manchester City is also very classy.”

“But Alisson is a great goalkeeper and in particular he brings much needed calm to the team. I think stability came to the Liverpool defense when Alisson and Van Dijk were present. Without them, the team lost faith.”

“I think in the last three years, Alisson and Van Dijk have been the two most important factors. Salah has scored a lot of goals, but the performance of those two players was fantastic.”
