Alisson says Liverpool ‘already feels like home’

Alisson has trained with his Liverpool team-mates for the first time and says he already “feels at home” at the club.

Liverpool paid a world-record fee for a goalkeeper in capturing the Brazil international from Roma for £65m this month and he has now joined Jurgen Klopp’s men at their training base in France.

“It has been a great day which I had been looking forward to,” Alisson told Liverpool’s official website.

“I’ve had a good few resting days with my family but we all couldn’t wait to get the new season under way soon. It’s only my first day and I feel at home already.”

Alisson’s Brazil team-mate Roberto Firmino also reported back for training, and the pair could play a part in Liverpool’s two remaining pre-season matches, against Napoli on Saturday and Torino on August 7.

The Reds then begin their Premier League campaign against West Ham on August 12.

“Although these two weeks don’t seem like a long time, it’s enough for us to be ready for our first game against West Ham,” Alisson added.

“We’ll play two friendlies before this game and I’m sure the hard work the team have put in so far is going to help me become a member of the squad as quickly as possible so that I am 100 per cent ready for our first game to kick off the Premier League in a good way.

“My first impression tells me it won’t be difficult for me here – it’s a great squad formed by great players and brilliant professionals. I’m sure it’s going to be a great season for us all.”
