Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has branded Liverpool's new number one Alisson Becker 'world class', and has backed the Brazilian to be a success in the Premier League.
Alisson completed a £67m move to Liverpool from Roma last month, and the 25-year-old will make his debut for the Reds in their pre-season friendly against Napoli this weekend.
Begovic has insisted that "any team" must have a strong goalkeeper in order to be successful, with Alisson drawing praise from the established Premier League stopper.
"I think goalkeepers are important to any team. We play a role and there is a certain value on that and Alisson is a world-class goalkeeper," Begovic told reporters.
"A well-rounded goalkeeper is just as important. This is what managers and clubs look for - to be as complete as possible, to have as many skills as you can. I think that is what values those goalkeepers at that level.
"Of course, we all want to try and improve our games to try and get to that level and be as complete as possible."
Alisson will replace Loris Karius as Liverpool's number one goalkeeper for the coming season.
