When Alisson is ready, he will be in our goal. We all need to help him so he can perform as good as possible. That is maybe the only difference.
“But for that to happen we need a strong squad around him and Loris is an outstanding goalkeeper. That’s the truth. Nothing else. My job, together with Michael Edwards and Mike Gordon, is to bring the best players who are available for Liverpool, if they fit in.
“That’s what we have tried to do. Then my job is to work with these boys and give them this kind of shape that they can really work together in the best possible way.”
