Former Roma goalkeeping coach Roberto Negrisolo is full of praise for Alisson Becker.
Negrisolo believes Alisson is the best in Italy.
“Is Alisson worth €50m? Don’t be silly, he’s worth far more than that,” Negrisolo told Il Romanista.
“I don’t think many people have realised who Alisson is. This guy is a phenomenon. He is the Number One of Number Ones. He is the Messi of goalkeepers, because he has the same mentality as Messi. He is a goalkeeper who can mark an era.
“There is absolutely no comparison with Gianluigi Donnarumma, because Alisson is extraordinary. The first time I saw him play, he wasn’t yet on the Roma books. I watched him play for Brazil and he made an enormous impression on me.
“The way he behaves in the goal, he reminds me of Dino Zoff. I’d also compare him to Michel Preud-Homme, who had the class of someone born to be a goalkeeper.
“I told Alisson when I met him a Roma’s Trigoria ground that he was born for this. He was already strong when he arrived, but has improved even more since he has been in Italy, especially when coming out low to get the ball. Now he is far more deciy.sive in those situations.”
