Some Liverpool supporters have been showing their appreciation for Manuel Neuer after he congratulated Alisson on his incredible winning goal.
The Reds have entered the final stretch of the Premier League season, knowing that wins against Burnley and Crystal Palace should seal a place in the top four.
At one stage, it looked like Liverpool’s Champions League hopes were over, but they have rallied in recent weeks, winning six and drawing two of their last eight games.
Sunday’s 2-1 win away to West Brom was comfortably the Reds’ most dramatic day of the campaign as it looked as though they were about to drop two crucial points before Alisson popped up in the dying seconds, powering home a last-gasp header and producing a truly great footballing moment.
“I congratulated him and we exchanged a few messages. Every goalkeeper dreams of scoring the winning goal. Phenomenal. What an amazing header. I’m so pleased for him. He’s a very nice guy and easy to get along with. He deserves that moment.”
