Alisson has broken his silence and responded to the messages by posting on social media. In the post,
Alisson said “I would like to thank everyone for the messages and tributes to my beloved father! Our family feels loved by everyone! May God bless each one’s life.”

Alisson said “I have a family of goalkeepers. My father played for his work team, my mother played handball in school, and my grandfather played in amateur football. And after all this, came my brother playing and then I started to like it, too.”
