Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has heaped praise on Alisson for his distribution against Napoli on Saturday.

The Brazilian has made a real impression since joining Liverpool in a £65million deal from Roma and shone in his first appearance for the club as they comprehensively defeated Napoli in Dublin.

Robertson, who played just over an hour of the friendly, believes Alisson’s distribution from the back will be a real beneficiary this season and claimed he has already established a bond with the defenders in front of him.

‘All goalkeepers are different so it takes a bit of time, but this result will help the defence and help him know how we play as well,’ Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com.

‘I thought he looked very comfortable and I think we adapted to him quite easily.

‘He was very comfortable on the ball five minutes in and it meant we could show for it and he was starting most of our play, so it was a very good performance from him.’

Despite hooking up with the squad late due to his World Cup involvement with Brazil, Alisson’s transition into a new team has been seamless and he is already a popular member in the dressing room. 

Robertson added: ‘From day one he settled in quite quickly,’ said Robertson.

‘I think everyone knew from his first interview he spoke very good English so the settling-in period is over for him and I think he is very much part of the squad.

‘Today he looked at home, he looked comfortable and when he was called upon he made the saves he had to make, so long may that continue and that will give him more confidence than he has already got and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the season ahead.’
