Liverpool fans hit out at Souness over Alisson criticism

Liverpool fans have been on cloud 9 over the summer due to the club’s important transfer business.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has addressed key areas on the pitch by recruiting midfielders Fabinho and Naby Keita, as well as winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

The biggest purchase of them all, though, is the signing of Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson, who according to Sky Sports, cost a world-record £67m.

The Reds needed to make a statement with a big-money move for a shot-stopper due to the torrid mistakes made by Loris Karius in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in May.

With Liverpool keen to become serious Premier League title challengers, they required a world-class keeper to compete with their rivals, but former Reds star Graeme Souness is not convinced that Alisson is in that category.

In a piece for The Times, the Sky Sports pundit claimed that there “has to be a question mark against” the Brazilian as he has not played 300-400 games at the top level.

These comments have dampened some Liverpool fans’ spirits, those of whom were impressed by the Brazilian when he made his debut in a pre-season friendly against Napoli at the weekend.

Some supporters slammed Souness on Twitter after reading his assessment of the keeper.
