The Spaniard, who signed on a free transfer after being released from West Ham United in the summer, has had a big hand in the Reds’ fortunes so far after saving the crucial penalty to win Liverpool the UEFA Super Cup. The 32-year-old has kept one clean sheet in five appearances and has only conceded six goals in that time, as well as making some wonderful saves along the way.
His first two weeks at #LFC – rushed into the mix with little fitness, training and team understanding – had enough storylines to fill an entire career. Excellent at Napoli and Stamford Bridge. Top saves, handling, distribution. And: no pressure to rush Alisson back.

Liverpool fans were surprised with the arrival of Adrian after Simon Mignolet’s brisk departure to Club Brugge in August. In the past, Liverpool have not had the best of times with goalkeepers. Polish shot-stopper Jerzy Dudek famously spilt the ball to let in Manchester United’s Diego Forlan to score at Anfield during a 2-1 defeat, and Loris Karius had a nightmare against Real Madrid in Kyiv after the Reds lost the Champions League Final 3-1 in 2018.
Here you will find some of the best comments about Adrian from Liverpool fans:

Best Spanish keeper in the league

Your last sentence is crucial. No rush for Alisson. He comes back only when absolutely ready.

If we win the league will go down as best free transfer ever

Can’t argue with that he’s been excellent so far.

Most of his saves and some of his distribution is like Allison playing wearing a Adrian mask.
