UCL: Van Dijk reacts to Alisson superb save against Napoli

Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 12/12/2018

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has heap praise on goalkeeper Alisson for his superb save in the additional time of their clash against Napoli in the Champions League at the Anfield on Tuesday evening.

Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik’s effort in front of goal in the 92nd minute was denied by Alisson which help Liverpool to secure a spot in the round of 16.

Mohamed Salah’s goal proves to be the only goal of the clash that ensured they qualified for the second round.

Klopp receives triple boost ahead of UCL tie with Napoli

“He's been fantastic for Liverpool and for us." 

“[He's a] great character, a great guy and he helps us all. He gives confidence to everyone. That's how it is and how it should be as well, for the whole team."

Jürgen Klopp's players can now look forward to Monday's draw for the last 16 - and Van Dijk feels no side will want to be paired with the Reds.

The Dutchman continued: “I don't think so. That's what we showed last season and this season as well. We'll see what's going to happen.” Van Dijk told Liverpool website.
