'I Trust Him' - Liverpool Goalkeeper Alison Reveals Which Teammate He Looks For In Games
Alisson Becker has praised Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson in a new documentary and explained why he “looks for” him in games.
The Reds skipper arrived at Anfield in 2011 from Sunderland as a 21-year-old and has gone on to enjoy an extremely successful spell in the North West.
The pair have developed a great relationship on and off the pitch and the Brazilian was full of praise for his teammate in a recent documentary about Henderson.
The England international released the documentary on Saturday, in what was a detailed dive into the midfielder and his character.
In the programme directed by Laurence Mckenna, Alison speaks of how he often tries to find Henderson on the pitch when he has the ball.
“I look a lot to him as he is really visible on the pitch, the way he moves, and he is someone that really runs for the team,” the Goalkeeper said.
“As we have a team that likes to build up from behind, we need players in midfield always giving options.
“For me, Hendo is a guy that I look for building up. He is always making an option, even if he has a man at his back and he is a guy who can do that.
“So, I really trust him to give the ball and then he can do anything he wants and is capable of doing.”
After a tricky first few seasons on Merseyside for Henderson, he matured at the club and eventually became a pivotal part of Brendan Rodgers’ side in 2013.
Following Steven Gerrard’s departure in June 2015, he was named club captain, a symbolic moment in his progression.
He has now lifted the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup whilst captain, and has made 449 appearances while scoring 33 times for the Reds.
At 32, his time at Liverpool may be close to coming to an end.
