Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has told the Italian media that he cried when he got his transfer from AS Roma to the Premier League side in the summer window.

The Brazil international’s move to Liverpool at the time was a world record transfer fee for a goalkeeper.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Napoli, Alisson was asked about his move to England: “Leaving Rome was difficult, I cried for a long time with my wife.

“I made a professional choice, a step forward for my career and Roma earned a big 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 a lot of friends outside of football.”

Liverpool will come up against Napoli tomorrow night which will the first time Alisson has played in Italy following his move to Anfield in the last window.

Jurgen Klopp’s team got off to the perfect start in their Champions League campaign when they defeated PSG two weeks ago but face a tough another test in Naples.

Napoli drew their first game with Red Star Belgrade and they’ll be looking to get a win over the Merseyside club.
