Alisson on Liverpool’s Squad Harmony: We Have No Vanity

Nothing but love and respect for Alisson’s teammates.

Liverpool: they’re pretty good. Seems like it’s going pretty well.

What’s obvious is that everyone at the club is enjoying what is happening. The players are genuinely tight knit as a group, which certainly isn’t always the case. Alisson Becker has said as much recently.

“I think we are all in the same goal, that’s the main thing,” the Liverpool Echo report the Reds’ number one as saying. “We have no vanity in the changing room.

”We enjoy being together. We enjoy the moments we are playing together.

”[At the Club World Cup] we were in the hotel together for some time, some days. We enjoyed that time. No, I didn’t lead any singing with the guitar!

”We enjoyed our moments, speaking, laughing, speaking about many things in life. But the most important thing is we like to be together on the pitch.

”We like to enjoy the game. We like to run together to put in our intensity. We know how strong we are together so this is the most important thing for the team.”

Discussing the time he spent injured this season, missing out on the UEFA Super Cup final, the Brazilian added that “yes, that it true. It is not easy to miss a final in that way. You always want to be involved.

”As a player you want to be there on the pitch doing what we love. When you miss games, you miss opportunities and it is normal that you are a little bit sad.

”My family helped me and God helped me at that time on the recovery. I did my best in some small way.

”I tried to support my team-mates as much as I can. But it is not easy for anyone to be out from a big thing that you work for, like that, knowing how much work you could have done.

”I was at home injured when we won that final. I saw it, of course.”

Alisson really drives home a key aspect of Klopp’s Liverpool: everyone is together. There don’t seem to be any real feuds, no matter what people spin about Salah and Mané. It’s good. It’s all good.
