Alisson reveals Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah sent him a message

Alisson reveals Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah sent him a message

Liverpool have made Roma's Alisson the world's most expensive goalkeeper after signing him on a six-year deal. The Egyptian winger hit the ground running as he had his most prolific season of his career under Jurgen Klopp, and Liverpool fans will be hoping that Alisson can start with similarly good form.

With two penalty saves and 28 goals conceded considered, Alisson would have notched 121 Fantasy points last season, which would have made him a top 10 goalkeeper in Goal's Premier League game.

"In terms of my life and my career, it's a huge step for me being part of this club and this family", Alisson added.

Alisson played in all five of Brazil's matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, where A Seleção were eliminated in the quarter-finals after a 2-1 defeat to Belgium. Liverpool have been dogged in their pursuit of the player following the conclusion of the World Cup.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has agreed with Mourinho's annoyance regarding the hasty turnover after the conclusion of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation which has left a number of clubs without key stars for the whole of pre-season so far.

That is why the most expensive goalkeepers have remained so far behind the most expensive outfield players.

"I actually think now they (Liverpool) have got a chance, they can win the league", Saunders told talkSPORT.

"Last season when I was at Monaco, when we had the need for me to defend, I used to stay back and my team-mates would attack".

There was a world-class goalkeeper on the market, and the club gave us the opportunity to sign him.

Following the completion of his move to Anfield, Alisson will join up once again with Salah as a teammate after they were both at Roma in the 2016-17 season.

"But of course he still has to adapt and age-wise he can improve, the best years are coming in the goalkeeper life, so it's all good".

Referring to the fee paid by Liverpool, Klopp said: "I think it's something we have to do".

The newest additions to Jürgen Klopp's squad have yet to see competitive action for Liverpool, but they are already making a big impression on the training ground.

Did Trump and Putin agree to anything? Only they know
Only interpreters were present for the two leaders' private meeting and details of what was discussed remain unknown. Rarely has any White House sent the compass needle spinning in so many different directions in such a short time.
