‘Why Would Alisson Want To Leave?’ Says Roma President
Roma president James Palotta can’t see any reason why goalkeeper Alisson would want to leave the club. The Brazilian is being closely linked to Liverpool and Real Madrid after impressing in Italy this season.
He has fought off competition from Ederson to keep hold of the Brazil number 1 jersey as part of a Roma side that has advanced to the semi-finals of the Champions League. His performances have drawn attention from Europe’s elite.
But Roma supremo Palotta cann’t see why the goalie would want to go, “Why would he want to leave here? He has a contract and I love him. I didn’t want to sell him when people talked about him leaving two years ago.
“I thought he was excellent then and he is showing how good he is now,” he told Football Italia. Initially, Alisson was behind Wojciech Szczesny in the pecking order at Roma, until the Pole joined Juventus in the summer.
