Alisson reveals what Philippe Coutinho told him before Liverpool transfer

Allison joined Liverpool in a world-record £65 million transfer this summer, replacing Loris Karius as the club’s No 1.

His move was funded in part by Coutinho’s January departure, as the forward sealed his dream £142 million move to Barcelona.

Now, Alisson has revealed it was the outgoing forward who actually convinced him to move to Merseyside, swapping Roma for Liverpool in what was at the time the most expensive transfer for a goalkeeper ever.

“He spoke highly of Jurgen [Klopp] and about the players,” Alisson explained.

“He said there is no vanity in the squad but it’s a very ambitious squad with a strong desire to win.

“Coutinho also said he was very happy here with his family, which is really important.

“Our wives spoke to each other too and they said they had a great time living here, and we are very happy.”

Alisson also revealed that the atmosphere he experienced at Anfield while playing for Roma in the Champions League left a lasting impression.

‘The atmosphere I experienced here contributed to my decision to sign,’ he continued. ‘There was also the way the Liverpool team played. It’s not dependent upon one player, it’s a real group effort. It’s a team that plays with love and passion.’
