Liverpool 1-0 Napoli: Excited Klopp Showers Accolades On Goalkeeper Allison
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for his team, with special mention of goalkeeper Alisson.
Liverpool were looking for a clean sheet victory or by two clear goals to make it to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League.
Mohamed Salah beat David Ospina at his near post in the 34th minute, and that was enough to shoot Liverpool to the Round of 16.
The clean sheet was the key, however, and Liverpool survived a huge scare in injury time when Alisson made his crucial save from Arkadiusz Milik in a rare Napoli opening.
"If I knew Alisson was this good I would have paid double," said Klopp. "The goal Mo scored - what a goal, unbelievable - but the save Ali (Allison) made I have no words for that. That was the lifesaver tonight.
"It was wild and there were lots of counter attacks but we were ready for that. That is Anfield live and in colour.
"Wow, what a game. I am not sure a manager could be prouder of a team than I am."
The Brazilian keeper joined the Reds from Roma in July for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper of £66.8m.
