I feel at home already, says Liverpool's £65m goalkeeper Alisson

I feel at home already, says Liverpool's £65m goalkeeper Alisson

Firstly Liverpool colleague Marko Grujic was the first to have a pop at Wijnaldum as he was filmed missing a one vs one against Alisson, before Netherlands teammate Kevin Strootman got involved in the action. The transfer set the world record for a goalkeeper and means the Brazilian has a lot to live up to at Liverpool. Fans will be keeping a keen eye on their new goalkeeper, who is bound to play a part against Napoli and Torino.

Liverpool plucked the 21-year-old from MK Dons' academy at the start of the decade, and have sent him on loan to Wigan Athletic, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Fulham in recent seasons.

Alisson, the world's most expensive goalkeeper, will be thrown in the deep end nearly immediately as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that the Brazilian custodian will make his debut on Saturday when the Reds take on Serie A side Napoli. We should not waste time.

At full-time, players will also be handing out gifts and golden tickets, giving lucky Reds fans unforgettable Anfield experiences, such as invitations to Open Training sessions.

Alisson could feature when Liverpool face Napoli on Saturday.

"It's only my first day and I feel at home already". "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".

"I trained with them [the senior side] last year but to actually play this year has been insane".

"The squad that they have now and the strength they're looking to gain is as good as anything I played in".

"I would like them to win silverware", McManaman told ESPN FC.

"My first impression tells me that it won't be hard for me here - it's a great squad formed by great players and brilliant professionals".

"I really hope we see us all together because from my point of view we want to do things like that more often in the future, maybe earlier in the season when the players are back earlier".
