Alisson Reveals Coutinho Conversation Before Joining Liverpool
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson says he spoke with international teammate Philippe Coutinho before deciding to join the club from Roma in the summer. Coutinho played for the Reds for 5 years until he joined Barcelona in January.
Alisson and Coutinho are good friends and the goalie says Coutinho gave him a glowing report of life at Anfield, “[Coutinho] spoke highly of Jurgen [Klopp] and about the players. He said there is no vanity in the squad but it’s a very ambitious squad with a strong desire to win.
“Coutinho also said he was very happy here with his family, which is really important. Our wives spoke to each other too and they said they had a great time living here, and we are very happy.” Alisson also said he was attracted to the team’s style of play.
“The atmosphere I experienced here contributed to my decision to sign. There was also the way the Liverpool team played. It’s not dependent upon one player, it’s a real group effort. It’s a team that plays with love and passion.”
