Alisson Becker has explained how he had to realign his targets after moving to Liverpool. The Brazilian has become arguably the greatest goalkeeper in the world since arriving from Roma for £65million in July 2018. Alisson helped Jurgen Klopp’s side win the Champions League last season before claiming FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League winners’ medals this campaign. And the 27-year-old has revealed how ending Liverpool’s 30-year wait to be crowned English champions soon became a priority.
Alisson Becker said “When I arrived here before Liverpool, I always had the Champions League as my biggest goal, You always want to win the league obviously, but the Champions League is the biggest thing achievement that a player can have for his club. But when I arrived here, I heard people saying ‘why do we want the Champions League, we want the league!’. And I always said ‘no, I want both!’. That started coming into my veins, and I wanted to go for that. We were close the season before (last season). We had this feeling that it was nearly there and we could do it. We won the Champions League and that gave us confidence to win the league for the people and the club. It was a long wait that everybody had, but we’ve won at the right time. At this moment, it means everything. The biggest part of my achievements in football I achieved for this club, through this club, individual and my teammates, so it means a lot to me and my family. Since we arrived here we could feel that it’s a different club, a club who treats you as a family and can give you all the support that you need to play football, to stay focused on playing football. So, we are comfortable here. We love being here. We also love the warmth that we receive from the supporters, they are part of this family as well.”
