“I cried a lot with my wife” – Liverpool star speaks out about transfer from Italian giants to Anfield

Alisson of Liverpool

Alisson has revealed that he cried when it was time to leave AS Roma and join Liverpool. The Brazilian left the Italian giants in the summer for a then-world record fee for a keeper and even considered staying in Rome as he spoke with Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t ESPN).

The 26-year-old has made a brilliant start to his career in Liverpool but claimed it was difficult to leave the Italian side.

“I cried a lot, together with my wife. It’s only right that I’m honest about it: I made a professional decision; a step forward in my career and for Roma, who earned a huge sum.

“I decided with my head to move to Liverpool, but my heart was full of tears. I spent two special years in Rome. My daughter was born there and I have a lot of friends there outside of football.”

The keeper added he was happy in Rome and enjoyed some of its sights such as the Colosseum and claimed the Serie A is still a big league.

“I’ve got big ambitions and so do Liverpool, and now I’m playing in the biggest league in the world. [Serie A is] not far behind, it’s just different and less intense.”

The Brazil international further added that Jurgen Klopp would often speak to him via FaceTime after the clubs agreed on a deal. The German explained the project to the keeper and Alisson claimed he always admired our manager.

The keeper might have been torn leaving Rome but he has made us a formidable side. The 26-year-old was excellent in our game against Chelsea as he made some quality saves and he has already become an important player for us.

Alisson can only get better with more games at the club and if he plays in top form, we might end up having the best defence in the league.

“It’s gone great”, “Another one” – Some Liverpool fans curse luck with star player picking up injury

Published

on

Sadio Mane

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has sustained a broken thumb, according to reports (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The star was with the national side when the injury occurred during training, and the Liverpool Echo claims Mane would be assessed by the club once he returns to Melwood.

This is another injury that Jurgen Klopp has to deal with from the international break. Virgil van Dijk is still suffering from a rib problem while Mohamed Salah picked up a minor problem for Egypt.

The duo are expected to continue their treatment at Anfield, as per the report.

The 26-year-old Mane has four goals to his name this season, and it will be interesting to see if he plays against Huddersfield at the weekend. Liverpool are tied at the top of the table with Chelsea and Manchester City on 20 points.

Some Liverpool fans were cursing the international break for the number of injuries we picked up while a few believed this was good as Mane needed a rest.

Liverpool interested in signing 27-year-old superstar from Napoli

Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are interested in signing Napoli superstar Lorenzo Insigne, according to Rai Sport (h/t Metro).

The Italian scored a late winner for the Serie A club in our Champions League loss a couple of weeks ago. The report adds that Chelsea are keeping an eye on the 27-year-old too and would rival the Reds for any bid on the Italian.

The attacker is known to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their time at Napoli. The report adds that any team looking to sign Insigne up would have to stump a huge fee since the player has four years left on his current deal.

The attacker has seven goals and an assist in all competitions for the Serie A side, so far, and helped them to second place in the league last season.

The report adds that Klopp wants more firepower for the Reds and Insigne could be the perfect fit at Anfield.

Liverpool have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as quality wingers and added Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer. However, signing Insigne could make our attack one of the best in the world.

The report adds it would be difficult for Insigne to switch clubs in the winter window and we would have to wait till the summer before we make a bid for the 27-year-old.
