‘Buffon is my role model’ says Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson

Liverpool star Alisson spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League clash against Napoli. Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson sees Gigi Buffon as a role model and a great man.

“I feel closest to Taffarel, Julio Cesar and Dida, they were three great goalkeepers. Julio had a lot of strength and speed in his legs, Taffarel was calm and reliable and Dida covered his goal very well. I try to take the best from each of them.

“Since I was a child I’ve followed Gigi Buffon, he’s a role model, an example, and a great man. Wojciech Szczesny is doing very well, it’s not easy to replace Gigi at Juventus but he’s succeeding. ”
