Alisson Becker signs new long-term contract with Liverpool


Alisson Becker has committed himself to the club for the next six years

Alisson Becker has become the latest star to commit his future to Liverpool by signing a new contract until 2027.

The Brazil international has established himself as one of world's football's best goalkeepers during his three years on Merseyside following his £65million switch from Roma.

Alisson was an integral part of the side that won the Champions League in 2019, winning UEFA's inaugural 'Yashin Award' for goalkeepers for his performances during the Reds' successful European campaign.

The former Roma man then starred the following year to help Liverpool to a first league crown in 30 years as they won the title by 18 points.

He became the first goalkeeper in Anfield history to score a goal when he headed home the crucial winner against West Brom in May as the Reds charged towards a top-three finish in the Premier League.

Speaking to at the Reds' pre-season base in Evian, Alisson said: "I think I didn't waste too much time to think about that. It's something we just built in those last three years, the confidence, the trust that I have in the club and the club has in myself.

"Me and my family, we are really happy here. My kids are settled in England, in a different country, but they are growing up in that way. So we are really happy. I'm really glad that I can keep going on with my work here, doing a good job here. So, I'm really happy to make this decision – that is not hard for me.

"We have to set goals and we have to set them high – winning everything that we are playing [for], the Champions League, Premier League, the cups, everything. I think we can start from there.

"But obviously winning depends on what we will put on the pitch, what we will give on the pitch and we have to give 100 per cent at least. If we can push harder, we will go."
