Alisson Becker claims Liverpool “feels like home” now after settling well on Merseyside.

The 26-year-old, who joined the Reds last summer for £65million, has 20 clean sheets in 39 appearances this season, conceding just 26 goals.

And the Brazilian is very much enjoying his time as a Red so far.

“I have been having regular English lessons. One of the hardest challenges I had at the start was getting used to the accent, not just the British accent but the Liverpool accent!” Alisson said, according to LiverpoolFC.com.

“But I’ve managed to deal with this. I can understand people and I can communicate with my teammates, which is really important.

“When I came here I felt that everyone was important for me, not just the Brazilians. Obviously Roberto Firmino was already here and then Fabinho arrived more or less the same time as I did.

“All the players are important, be they the local players from the UK or the players from overseas. I admire the strength we have as a team and the quality that every single one of our players has, but the most important thing for me is the team spirit.

“Above all I feel at home here. Home is where the heart is and where the family is. My family is here, my daughter and my wife live here and my parents come when they can.

“My brother lives in Portugal, which is not too far, and comes when he can. That helps when I’m missing them. When I think abut Brazil, I miss it a lot but I have been welcomed here and I feel very much at home.

“The whole group received me very well. The fans have been very kind too, as have the technical team, so I’m really happy here in Liverpool.”
