Alisson Becker crowned 2019 goalkeeper of the year!

Alisson Becker is the first winner of the 2019 Yachine Trophy. At the Ballon d'Or ceremony, celebrated in Paris, the Liverpool goalkeeper won the prize for best goalkeeper of the year! Alisson has a Champions League trophy and a Copa America trophy under his belt last season.

Oblak, Ter Stegen, Kepa, Szczesny, Handanovic, Onana, Lloris, Ederson, Neuer.. and Alisson Becker.

The Yachine Trophy was awarded for the first time at the Ballon d'Or gala in Paris. Organisers France Football have created the award to recognise the best goalkeeper in Europe during the past year.

Alisson was amongst the favourites to win and he did just that! After a successful season with Liverpool, he has been rewarded!

The Brazilian international beat his great rivals to boast of being the best goalkeeper, the winner of the Yachine Trophy.

Having excelled in Rome, the goalkeeper came to Anfield with the intention of raising the level in net. A further step in the defensive section that has given great joy to the Jurgen Klopp's team.

With Liverpool managing to have a spectacular Premier League season in a fierce fight with Manchester City, who ended up lifting the trophy. The achievement of the German coach's team was to lift the Champions League in the Wanda Metropolitano.

But Alisson's year didn't just end there. In June, once the campaign with his club was over, the goalkeeper began an adventure with a happy ending in the Copa America. Tite's team won the trophy in their host edition.

A great 2019 that ends with the seventh place in the final classification of this 2019 Ballon d'Or, being the best goalkeeper in the world with that Yachine Trophy, in its first edition, which he can already boast.
