Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp wrote a letter to the team goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who experienced a serious tragedy.
The Brazilian footballer’s father passed away a few days ago.
The German specialist decided to express his emotions in a letter: “It is always very difficult and sometimes impossible to speak on such topics in public. Maybe this will make the letter easier for me. The world has suffered a tremendous loss lately. The pain will affect other members of our club as well. Many people on the planet have lost a loved one, but a real tragedy happened to our dear friend Ali. I don’t even know what to say, there are no words to convey these emotions, I just want to tell him that he and his family love us all very much. The best expression of his father’s memory is Alisson, a man who honors him every day. We need to give him as much time as he needs to recover. Our fans should also know that Ali is feeling their love. We should all celebrate the glorious moments that await him in his future career. “
I have a family of goalkeepers
“I have a family of goalkeepers,” Alisson said in 2018. – My father played in the team at work, grandfather – in amateur football. Then my brother came, so I liked it too. “When I was five years old, my brother and I watched my father play,” he recalled. – We saw how much he liked it. To be honest, he was a little crazy on the pitch. Jumped headfirst at the feet of the attacker to catch the ball. We both admired him and inherited his style. This is how it happens with children – you see how the father does something well and think: “I want to be like him.”
Recall that Jose Agostino Becker, the father of Alisson Becker, the goalkeeper of the English Liverpool and the Brazilian national team, was found dead. According to local police, he drowned in a lake near a country house. The body of 57-year-old Agostino was found on Wednesday evening. They searched him for 5 hours.
