Coming from a family of goalkeepers, Alisson joined Brazilian club Internacional’s academy in 2002 when was just 10 years old. He progressed through the youth setup and joined the senior team in 2013.

This season, there are no bouts that Alisson is the number one goalkeeper in the Liverpool Squad.

Ten things you didn’t know about Alisson

After impressing in Brazil, Alisson joined Serie A club AS Roma in 2016. Here was where he gained a great deal of recognition. At Roma, Alisson produced a string of excellent performances. Last season, he helped Roma finish 3rd in the Premier League and guided them to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

His performances attracted interest from Liverpool who were keen to replace Loris Karius after his antics in the Champions League Final in Kiev.

Liverpool eventually signed Alisson for a transfer fee of £66.8 million which made him the most expensive keeper in the world at the time.

This season, Alisson has done excellently for Liverpool so far. In 36 appearances, he has made 20 clean sheets for the Reds.

Now, we at Silly Season will reveal ten things you didn’t know about Alisson.

 He had to compete with a Brazilian goalkeeping legend

During the start of his career at Internacional, Alisson had to compete with legendary Brazilian goalkeeper Dida for the position of starting goalkeeper.

Dida joined Internacional from Gremio in 2014 and even though he was 41 at the time, he was still in good shape and gave Alisson some pretty stiff competition. However, Alisson eventually managed to seal a place in the starting XI.

9. He loves to play guitar

Mourinho next Real Madrid manager odds? Mourinho to join Real Madrid? The 2018-19 season has been a rather forgettable season for Real Madrid judging by their standards. The club were dealt with a few big blows before the start of the season. Zinedine Zidane stepped down as Real Madrid manager just days after guiding the club to the Champions League title. Then, a week following the conclusion of the world, Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo left the club to join Juventus. This season has been a disappointment for Real so far. After a string of poor performances under Julen Lopetegui, the club sacked him and replaced him with Santiago Solari. Real's performances have improved under Solari but they are far from convincing. A Champions League exit in the last 16 followed two back to back home defeats against Barcelona. Real are already out of the Copa Del Rey and are third in the La Liga table, 12 points behind leaders Barcelona. It looks like Real will only have the one silverware this season which is the Club World Cup.Real Madrid are in need of a new manager at the moment and need an experienced manager. There have been several reports linking Jose Mourinho to Real Madrid. Mourinho is out of a managerial job following his sacking as Manchester United manager.

Everybody has a hobby of their own and this is no different for footballers. Alisson also has a hobby of his own and that is playing his guitar. He even made an appearance on a Brazilian talk show, ‘The Noite with Danilo Gentili’. Apart from guitar, he is also fond of video games and fishing.
