Video: Liverpool target Mathew Ryan

Liverpool are this week linked with Australian ‘keeper Mathew Ryan – and the 22-year-old certainly looks handy.

Excellent distribution, good communication, good at collecting crosses, he appears to tick all the boxes. He was recently named goalkeeper of the year in Belgium for 2014.

Respected blog InBedWithMaradona describes the Club Brugge stopper’s progress:

“[Ryan] has continued to improve his all-round game and look much more assured under high crosses… His sublime distribution remains a huge plus and something that still sets him apart from his rivals. He is capable of launching passes onto the left boot of a winger in full flight; it’s a skill that makes his team frighteningly dangerous on the break.”
