Alisson reveals why he broke down in tears before joining Liverpool


Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, has revealed he was reduced to tears when he made the decision to leave Roma in the summer.

The 26-year-old became the world’s most expensive keeper when he moved to Anfield in July for £67m.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Alisson admitted it was difficult to sever ties with Roma after making 37 appearances for the Serie A club.

“Leaving Rome was difficult. I cried for a long time, along with my wife.

“It is right, to be honest. I have made a professional choice, a step forward for my career and Roma have earned a large sum.

“With my mind, I decided to go to Liverpool, but my heart was still full of tears.

“I spent two special years in Rome, my daughter was born there, I have many friends there even out of football.

“So many times I went for a walk around the city: The Trevi fountain, in the dark, is so beautiful it moves you. But my favourite place is the Colosseum, where you breathe history,” he said.
