‘He’s so difficult!’ – Gabriel Jesus reveals the Liverpool player he hates playing against

‘He’s so difficult!’ – Gabriel Jesus reveals the Liverpool player he hates playing against

Gabriel Jesus, a forward for Arsenal, has lauded his Brazil teammate and Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Jesus and Alisson are currently preparing for the World Cup, where they hope to end their nation’s 20-year wait for the sport’s most prestigious honor.

Tite’s squad is filled with world-class players in all positions, to the extent that Jesus’ place in the team was not guaranteed, and Alisson faces stiff competition from Manchester City’s Ederson for a starting spot.

Jesus was Ederson’s teammate from 2017 to 2022; however, when speaking with Sky Sports about the caliber of his international teammates, the 25-year-old praised Liverpool’s goalkeeper.

“I have played against Alisson in Brazil and he is so difficult,” Jesus said.

“Two times I went against him one-v-one and he defended my shots. They were good shots and he defended them because Alisson is so big.

“Brazil have really good keepers, even with Weverton in Palmeiras, he is so good. We are lucky to have them.”

Jesus will be happy to be on the same team as Alisson for a change, as he has scored just twice against the 30-year-old in the 10 club games in which they have met.

Gabriel Martinelli, another Arsenal forward who made Brazil’s squad, praised Alisson similarly, saying, ‘He’s so good.

“When I went to the national team last time, when we played against Japan and South Korea, I remember when we were in training and I came one-v-one with him and it’s so difficult, he’s so big.”

When Arsenal defeated Liverpool by a score of 3-2 earlier this season, Martinelli was able to beat Alisson.

Brazil’s World Cup campaign will begin on November 24 against Serbia in Qatar, followed by matches against Switzerland and Cameroon.
