Neuer lauds Liverpool's Alisson, Man City star Ederson as modern masters

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has paid tribute to Alisson and Ederson.

The Liverpool and Manchester City shot-stoppers have arguably eclipsed Neuer as the two of the best goalkeepers in football.

"Alisson of Liverpool and Ederson at Manchester City are complete goalkeepers," he told France Football. "They've mastered the modern game and are excellent with two feet. I like them both. They're consistent and they rarely make mistakes.

"They're among the best in the world, along with Hugo Lloris, who is more of my generation and who has enjoyed a great year with Tottenham, reaching the Champions League final.

"Lloris and I have many points in common with regards to our respective careers, having been captains of both club and country. He's someone that I appreciate a lot."
