Jurgen Klopp is confident this summer’s club record-signing Alisson Becker will make a huge impact at the club.
The German tactician praised the Brazilian ahead of their away clash with the Hammers.
Alisson was impressive for Brazil at the World Cup in Russia and Klopp has no doubts he will deliver terrifically for the Reds this season, as they plan to kick start their campaign with a strong win over West Ham on Sunday.
Speaking ahead of the clash, the manager said: “Just be a goalkeeper. Be yourself, in this case, because he is very calm and laid back – and that helps.
The 51-year-old added, lauding the 25-year-old shot-stopper with accolades for settling “really quick”.
“It’s about making the right decisions in the right moments. It’s all good. He’s settled really quick, as if he’s been here longer than two weeks. That’s all fine.”
Alisson Becker join Liverpool from Roma in July, for a reported fee of 66.8 million pounds, a world-record a held for just 20 days, before being displaced by Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Meanwhile, Klopp has also praised the out of favoured striker Daniel Sturridge’s good run of form during their pre-season tour.
The injury-prone England international was rumoured with an exit from the club.
But Klopp maintains he will remain at the club. He added: “He’s still here, and he played a good pre-season. He could do a lot of the sessions, to be honest,”
“I can’t remember a bad game off him in pre-season, which is good. I said it 500 times already; when Daniel is fit, nobody doubts him. I do not.”
