Alisson returns for Cruzeiro and makes his 50th appearance for the club
Attacking midfielder Alisson returned to the Cruzeiro side yesterday and played 32 minutes in their 1-1 draw with Ponte Preta. Having recovered from a thigh injury, the 21-year-old received praise for good performance and applause from fans in the Mineirāo in what was his 50th appearance for the club.
He said: “It is always nice to receive the affection and praise of the fans. But I have to keep working, seeking the best ball, to be able to help the team. It was not the result we expected, but I'm glad to be back.”
“Reaching the mark of 50 games is of great importance to me. I hope to get much further and continue making history with titles at Cruzeiro. Now you think about the 51st game, which may be against River Plate.”
