Alisson was elated about the experience of skippering the team and underlined the depth of leadership qualities within Jürgen Klopp's squad.
“The players did a vote for this – for extra captains. It's a pleasure, an honour for me, being captain of this team. Many big players did that before," the Brazil international told Liverpoolfc.com post-match.
“We have an amazing captain, but we have a lot of leaders on the team who are not wearing the band on the arm. But many leaders that play important roles; myself, Sadio, Mo, all the players.
“It's really important to have all these players on the team who can make a leadership and push the players forward when it's needed."
