Alisson Becker, the Liverpool player says that the new signings have really changed things at Liverpool. After several years of limited movement in the transfer market, the Reds brought in four new first-team players this summer. Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch have given Liverpool a fresh look. They’re also at a good position in the current season of the premier league.
Liverpool player says how things has changed at Anfield:
Speaking to the Liverpool ECHO this week, Alisson shared how things are starting to look different at Anfield.
“The team has changed a lot,” says the 31-year-old. “When I first arrived here, in the first three seasons the team was pretty much the same.
Not many players came in, but after the first season some players started to go. That didn’t affect the way we played too much, but it has changed more after last season.“More players left the club and more players came in so I think that changed a little bit the way that we play. Now we look more of a team that likes to keep the ball more – more of a possession team, but still with quick strikers, quick transitions.
“Sometimes we can play really good on the counter-attack as well and we still like to press high. So we’ve changed, but at the same time the strength that we had in the past is in the manager’s idea. He’s kept that and tries to bring that to this rebuilt team.
It’s true that the Liverpool of 2023 does look very different to the 2018 vintage that Alisson walked in to.
In terms of style, it’s also clear that ‘Liverpool 2.0’ are going to have a different approach to Jurgen Klopp’s first great Reds side. Whether they’ll be as successful, we’ll have to wait and see. With Alisson still here, there’s every chance they will.
