Alisson Reveals That He Did Not Watch Champions League Final
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson says he did not watch the Reds’ Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last season, even though he knew it was quite likely he would move to the club.
Alisson joined from Roma later in the summer as a pair of horrendous errors from Loris Karius in the Liverpool goal helped Madrid to a 3-1 victory. Liverpool knocked Alisson’s Roma out in the semi- final.
The goalkeeper told BT Sport that he did not watch the game, “I did not watch the game. It was a very important game to watch but we [Roma] had made it so far that it was too frustrating to watch, so some of us decided not to.
“I was also preparing for the World Cup at that time, so I was probably training. I ended up not watching it. After the World Cup, I did start to ponder about what I could achieve here [at Liverpool].
“I started to study the club and when it got more official and Klopp called me, he explained the whole project to me which without a doubt, influenced my decision greatly.”
