Goalkeepers are one of the most important figures on a football field.
Undervalued for their contributions and over-criticised for their errors, there is no position under quite as much scrutiny as the goalkeeper.
Their unique position makes those who excel there all the more impressive. With that in mind, we have decided to make a list of the Top 3 goalkeepers with best save success rate in 2019 (who have made more than 10 appearances for their club). There might be some surprises, so buckle up.
3. Salvatore Sirigu
According to WhoScored.com, Torino shot-stopper Salvatore Sirigu kept opponents out 79.2% of the time, making him the third best goalkeeper in Europe for 2019.
At 32, he has already played for Italy since 2010, collecting just 22 appearances behind Buffon, and previously started for French club Paris Saint-Germain. He is the veteran second-choice needed at the Italy national team. Sirigu was on the verge of playing in the Champions League this season with Torino, but they stumbled upon an obstacle such as English side Wolverhampton.
