The Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson said he will learn from his mistake in his team’s victory over Leicester City that led to him being dispossessed for Rachid Ghezzal’s goal but added that he will not change his approach of playing with the ball at his feet.
The world’s most–expensive goalkeeper was robbed on 62 minutes by Kelechi Iheanacho who crossed for Ghezzal to score and set up a tense last half an hour with Liverpool emerging as 2-1 winners. Their first-half goals, from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, were enough to win the game and take them back to the top of the Premier League for the time being, with their fourth win from four.
Speaking to ESPN Brasil, Alisson said that he would not be “stupid” to make the same mistake twice but maintained that it was part of his job to distribute the ball with his feet. “I am angry that I made a mistake that put the team in a difficult situation. When one person makes a mistake, it affects everyone and everyone fought back together. We have to improve still but the result is what matters at the moment.
“It was bad judgement. I made a mistake reading the play. I didn’t get a very good pass. We talked about that in the dressing room and I spoke to Virgil [Van Dijk, who played the ball]. It wasn’t a good pass but I could have just kicked it long.
