Danny Murphy has suggested fans do not appreciate how good Sergio Ramos is after the Real Madrid defender equalled Iker Casillas’ record 167 caps for the Spanish national team over the weekend.
Speaking on talkSPORT, the former Liverpool midfielder claims Ramos’ 23 major honours, which include four European Cups, one World Cup, two European Championships and many domestic league titles, cannot be overlooked when debating who should be branded the world’s best defender.

He (Murphy) claimed the ‘perception of players is sometimes based on their personality rather than footballing ability’ – something he believes has affected Ramos’ reputation over the past decade.
The former Liverpool midfielder said: “I don’t hear Ramos being talked about enough [considering] what he’s done in the game and how good a player he is.
“He’s probably one of the most decorated footballers on the planet.
“Okay, Gerard Pique, they’ve been fortunate that they’ve had each other to drive each other on and play together because they are two of the best. You know it’s a bit of a rivalry with those two; Messi and Ronaldo, and Pique and Ramos.
“But I think when you’ve played nearly 700 games for Real Madrid, that says a hell of a lot about your personality and your discipline, and your talent. 89 goals as well for a defender, I’ve got to add that, 89 goals.
“And don’t forget, some of them have been huge goals.”

Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold Claims Guinness World Record

Alexander Arnold with the award

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s name is officially in the record books with the Liverpool right-back snaring a place in the 2020 Guinness World Records collection.

The 21-year-old contributed an incredible 12 assists for the Reds last season in the Premier League to set a record for the most provided by a defender in a single season.

To make the achievement even sweeter, Alexander-Arnold has replaced Everton duo Andy Hinchcliffe and Leighton Baines as the new record holder in the process.

While 2018-19 was a very impressive campaign individually for the Englishman, he was quick to pay tribute to his teammates, with Liverpool falling just one point short of the league title.

“It’s an honour. I’ve always wanted to go forward and help the team to create as many chances as possible,” Alexander-Arnold said via The Mirror .

“It’s obviously down to the lads to put the ball into the back of the net, because football is a team game and without them this record wouldn’t be possible.

“It’s an unbelievably proud moment for me and my family, and something I hope will stand for a few years.”

Allison in training today

Liverpool will have Alisson available for the visit to Manchester United on Sunday after their first-choice goalkeeper stepped up his recovery from injury during the international break.

The Premier League leaders have been without their influential keeper since the opening game of the season but, nine weeks after damaging a calf muscle against Norwich, the 27-year-old is expected to reclaim his place at Old Trafford.

Alisson has undergone an intensive and individually tailored training programme over the past week without repercussions. The Brazil international, named Uefa’s goalkeeper of 2018-19 during his injury lay-off, is fit to replace Adrián, who has proven an impressive deputy for Jürgen Klopp’s side and boasts a 100% record in the Premier League as a Liverpool player.

Mohamed Salah, who sustained an ankle injury against Leicester before the international break, is also expected to be fit for Sunday.
