Some Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to tip Alisson Becker for the Ballon d’Or, after Brazil ended their 12-year long wait for a trophy with Copa America glory over Peru.
Tite’s Brazil side swept aside all who stood before them, and the Reds’ No.1 played a huge part in securing his first ever major international trophy.
“It reminds me of a bus seat!” – Watch a damning verdict on Chelsea’s new kit in the video below…
Alisson won the Golden Glove with five clean sheets from six games at the tournament, and almost went without conceding a single goal before Peru scored a penalty in the final.
Due to that, and the fact that the 26-year-old also won the Premier League Golden Glove and the Champions League Golden Glove, some Liverpool fans on Twitter have tipped their man between the sticks for football’s greatest individual prize – the Ballon d’Or.
Given his personal accolades and the silverware he has helped his club and country win, you definitely can’t rule the former Roma man out of the equation.
Let’s take a look at what the Liverpool supporters have been saying…
• Golden glove + runners up in the PL.
• Golden glove + CL winner.
• Golden Glove + Copa America winner.
• 36 clean sheets in 62 games all competitions.
