Former Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic heaped praise on Liverpool’s new signing Alisson. The Bournemouth custodian said that the Brazilian is a world class goalkeeper and has all it takes to succeed at the highest level.
The Bosnian said, “I think goalkeepers are important to any team. We play a role and there is a certain value on that and Alisson is a world-class goalkeeper. A well-rounded goalkeeper is just as important. This is what managers and clubs look for – to be as complete as possible, to have as many skills as you can. I think that is what values those goalkeepers at that level.Of course, we all want to try and improve our games to try and get to that level and be as complete as possible.”
The former Chelsea goalkeeper also spoke regarding Bournemouth’s goals for the upcoming season. He said, “Ultimately, the goal is to try and have a better season than the year before. We have had a couple of good mid-table finishes and we will see if we can try and progress this club and maybe get our highest ever points total and push the top 10. Maybe even a nice cup run would be good. We made the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup last year so if we can improve on these things it means we are moving in the right direction.”
Bournemouth ended 12th last season and will be looking to have a better run this time around. The Cherries begin their Premier League campaign at home against Cardiff City on 11th August.
