In his recent video interview with Betway, he talked about his culminating latest XI featuring the best Real Madrid and Liverpool players. Speaking of goalkeepers, he said: "I don't know about this one. I have a strong opinion on all the other positions, apart from this one, because Thibaut Courtois had a great season this year. He probably had his best season in a Real Madrid shirt.

He further added, “I mean, I would pick Alisson because I think he's had more clean sheets. But he was close, really. I could have gone both ways with the goalkeepers. He's really good with his feet, Courtois. Sometimes you don't see Real Madrid enough to have a solid opinion. He had a very good season, Courtois. But I would probably go with Alisson.

Steve said: “I would pick all four Liverpool backs. I think they've been great this year. Mendy, Carvajal, Militao. I mean, Alaba has done very well since he arrived, a tremendous amount of experience. And then he added: “But the fact that Liverpool have kept so many clean sheets this year and the fact that the two full-backs have had so many assists and scored goals, I would pick all four Liverpool backs. »

The former Liverpool star also said: “I'm slightly biased towards Liverpool, to be very honest, because I've seen them more often this year. So I would probably choose Fabinho. He then added: “I mean, I love Casemiro. He's been there so long now, hasn't he? But I would probably choose Fabinho, you know, he was at Real Madrid when he was younger. So I would probably choose Fabinho at the moment.
