Jurgen Klopp saluted the "incredible performance" of Adrian despite a lack of
preparation time as the goalkeeper's shootout heroics won Liverpool the UEFA Super Cup
against Chelsea in Istanbul.
The Spaniard denied Tammy Abraham in the shootout with a trailing leg in the 5-4 victory on
penalties at Vodafone Park, with the match level at 2-2 after extra time.
A few weeks ago, Adrian was training with semi-professional side UD Pilas in his country's
sixth tier to keep in shape following his release by West Ham United.
He was on the verge of joining Real Valladolid before Liverpool made him an offer to deputise
for Alisson as Simon Mignolet joined Club Brugge.
Klopp saluted the player big personality; as a factor in why he has settled so quickly and
performed so admirably for Liverpool despite his competitive inactivity.
