Alisson: “Liverpool? I really wanted to be part of that history.”


Former Roma and current Liverpool goalkeeper spoke to FourFourTwo about his move from Italy to the English side this past summer. These are his words:

“I chose Liverpool for the same reasons I went to Roma when I first left Brazil – I thought this would be the best move for my career. Chelsea were changing their manager and not playing in the Champions League. I’ve also always admired Liverpool’s history. This is a club with five European Cups in their trophy cabinet. I really wanted to be part of that history.”

“I came very close to winning the competition with Roma and I’m working hard to make it happen now with Liverpool. What’s life if not fighting for your dreams? I dream of winning the Champions League.”
