Alisson Becker admits he would be happy to see out his playing days with Liverpool despite a desire to return to Brazil at some stage of his career.
The 28-year-old is currently in his fourth season with the Reds having joined for Roma in the summer of 2018. The Anfield giants paid £66.8m for the Brazil international – a fee that raised a few eyebrows at the time. But his displays in goal for the Merseysiders have more than justified Jurgen Klopp’s insistence on signing the South American.
He already has a Premier League winner’s medal tucked away while claiming the Champions League in 2018-2019. And the former Internacional shot-stopper pledged his future to the club by penning a new deal in the summer.
He signed up until the end of the 2026-2027 campaign. And the man with 47 Brazil caps has made it clear he would be content if Liverpool was his last club.
“I am the kind of person who has a long term perspective and long term plans,” he told Sky Sports’ told Soccer Saturday, per The Echo. “I am really happy about it because me and my family are really settled.
“We are good settling in the club and this country. It’s a different country and culture for us but we are really happy here and our kids are really happy here.
“I have no problem to play all of my career here.”
Becker teases return ‘home’
Allison has made 135 appearances in all competitions for the north-west outfit. He is generally considered one of the best keepers in European football.
Konate is latest example of Klopp’s transfer habit
Ibrahima Konate is set to make his Liverpool debut after the usual wait for a Jurgen Klopp signing.
And the Copa America winner even chipped in with a goal to help earn Liverpool a spot in this season’s Champions League. He is fast becoming a club legend and may well end his playing days with the club.
But if he does move on it will likely be for another stint with Internacional.
“Obviously I have a desire to play again for my former club in Brazil,” he added. “Always when I speak of that, I give the supporters a little bit of hope.
“This is something I want to do but I am really happy here and really happy about this deal. And I can see the supporters and the people in the club are happy as well.”
