Jurgen Klopp hails Alisson ‘worldie’ after vital West Brom win

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp compared Alisson Becker’s ‘world class’ heading technique to Olivier Giroud after the keeper’s scarcely believable last-minute winner against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

    With the two sides tied at 1-1 in the 95th minute, Alisson headed up to join the attack at a corner, and he arrowed an excellent header across goal and into the bottom corner to keep Liverpool’s top-four dreams alive.

    The Brazilian dedicated the goal to his late father, who passed away in February, and Klopp admitted Alisson’s celebrations had him overcome with emotion.

    “We are really close so I know exactly what it means to him and what he thought in that moment,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “It’s outstanding. It’s really touching. It’s only football but it means the world to us.”

    While the narrative around the goal is obviously special enough, Klopp was keen to give Alisson credit for the sheer quality he displayed with the finish.

    “We have seen it ten times back in the dressing room and it’s absolutely incredible — what a goal, what a ‘worldie’, the technique was absolutely insane,” he continued (via The Times). “It was just perfect.

    “If Olivier Giroud has scored that we would be saying it was a world class goal so for this goal we have to say the same.

    “We haven’t had a lot of moments like that this season so we have to savour them when they come along.”

    He continued: “Unbelievable. I’ve never seen something like that. Insane technique! Nowadays you can’t be sure, really. ‘Is something wrong? It cannot be?’ So I turned around to ask, ‘Am I right, did he score?’ And you saw the faces of the boys. It means a lot to us, obviously.

    “We are still in the race. But Wednesday [when Liverpool go to Burnley] will be the same fight.”
