Fellow Brazilians Make Adapting Easy for Alisson at Liverpool
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson says it is not easy adapting to life in England, after moving from Rome this summer. The Brazilian stopper was born and raised in Brazil, but he says the plethora of compatriots in the Liverpool squad have helped him along.
The Seleção stopper told the Liverpool website, “It helps a lot, mainly with settling in. It’s not easy to come from one place – a city and a culture – and come to another country. The weather is different, everything changes; you have to adapt to everything, a new language.
“So having the Brazilians here does help. It helps me and helps my family settle in as well. My wife socialises a lot with my Brazilian teammates’ wives as well. That’s really important.
“It helps me, knowing my family are well and there’s a wider support network for them, even though the club provides us with everything we need. I have a great relationship with all my teammates here but it’s always good to have a piece of home, our country, with us.”
