Having won the Goalkeeper of the Season award for the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League, Alisson Becker is expected to pick up the award for Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper in the coming months. In a revealing interview with Marca, Alisson discussed the 2019 Ballon d’Or, his best ever save and his best moment last season, amongst a host of topics.
“I’ve read about it and it fills me with pride, but I know it’s not easy. It’s even more difficult as a goalkeeper. But I also have a calm conscience. This means that I’m doing well in my work and people value it.”
“It’s difficult to choose just one, but I think the most important one for me was against Napoli at Anfield, against Milik, in the last few minutes of the last Champions League group stage game.”
Best moment last season
“There were many special moments and it’s difficult to choose just one. Maybe the comeback against Barcelona because it was a really difficult match against one of the strongest teams in the world.”
