Ederson makes ‘surprise’ Alisson claim after Liverpool goalkeeper snubbed



Ederson makes ‘surprise’ request to Alisson after snub by Liverpool goalkeeper

Alisson has been in top form for Liverpool this season at a time when others weren’t at their best

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson is shocked that Alisson has been left out of Brazil’s new international squad.

Brazil face Morocco in a friendly this Saturday, but Liverpool shooter Alisson was surprisingly overlooked for the match despite being his country’s first choice at the World Cup in Qatar.

Ramon Menezes, interim coach of the Seleção as he continues the search for Tite’s permanent successor, has included Ederson in his 23-man squad this weekend alongside two goalkeepers who currently ply their trade in the Brazilian top flight: Mycael (Athletico Paranaense) and Weaverton (Palmeiras).

Ederson told reporters: “The first moment I saw the list I was surprised, but it’s the manager’s decision. They are picks. I thought he was going to be on the list, but he wasn’t. “I don’t know why when it comes to opportunities for young players. But we have to work, do our best, every day there is a good new player who can take on this responsibility.”

“I think it’s too early for that (talking about him being number one). Of course it’s always important to start a cycle, for me it’s no different and I hope to start in the best possible way. But we know it’s a long cycle, a lot can happen, you can go through a lot of phases during this time. You have to work as hard as you can, keep the consistency so you can be here as often as possible. »

However, Alisson was not the only Liverpool player to fail to qualify. Reds trio Arthur Melo, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino have also been left out of Brazil’s squad, a move Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to be unhappy about as he looks to attack the remaining 12 games of the Premier League season with as many players as possible. be in good physical shape.
