Robertson piles praise on Alisson after Napoli win: 'He was starting most of our play'
- Andrew says Alisson's distribution skills are superb as he started a bunch of LFC attacks vs Napoli
- He adds that the Brazilian has already settled despite joining the squad recently
“All goalkeepers are different so it takes a bit of time but today will help the defence and help him know how we play as well,” Robbo said after a 5-0 win over Napoli. “I thought he looked very comfortable and I think we adapted to him quite easily.
“He was very comfortable on the ball five minutes in and it meant we could show for it and he was starting most of our play, so it was a very good performance from him, but overall the squad performed very well today.
“From day one he settled in quite quickly,” Andrew added. “I think everyone knew from his first interview he spoke very good English so the settling-in period is over for him and I think he is very much part of the squad.
“Today he looked at home, he looked comfortable and when he was called upon he made the saves he had to make, so long may that continue and that will give him more confidence than he has already got and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the season ahead.”

To be fair, after putting up with Mignolet and Karius, a cardboard cutout of Peter Shilton would've been enough to get them excited.
