Shot-stopper praises God as he wins inaugural award for goalkeepers
After being named the inaugural Yachine Trophy winner as the best goalkeeper, Liverpool shot-stopper Allison Becker has praised God. For the first time, the France Football magazine, which organised the Golden Ball every year, has created the Yachine Trophy, named after the former Soviet Union goalie Lev Yashin, to reward the best goalkeeper of the year.
Becker said, “I thank my family and my wife, who support me wherever I go, my parents, they are in Brazil, and I think they are watching me, and God.
“It is a great honour that he is giving in 2019, winning the Champions League and some individual awards.
I don’t feel lucky, I feel blessed and grateful for what he did in my life and in my family life.”
