© Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has been voted the best Brazilian player in Europe for 2019.

The Brazilian player won the 11th edition of the Samba Gold hands down with 35.54% of the vote.

He becomes the first goalkeeper to lift the trophy. A more than deserved reward for the former Internacional Porto Alegre number one, he won the Champions League, the Club World Cup, and also the Copa America where he finished as the best player in the competition.

He won ahead of his club teammate, Roberto Firmino, the 2018 winner of the award (23.48%). Thiago Silva (10.46%), the Paris-Saint-Germain captain, who had a great 2018-2019 season finished in third place.

With more than 100,000 internet votes and the participation of major voters, the Samba Gold is awarded to a Liverpool player for the third time in its history after Philippe Coutinho in 2016 and Roberto Firmino in 2018.

The Samba d’or trophy belongs to the Miami-based company Samba Digital, co-founded by Frédéric Fausser (CEO) and Bernard Calvignac (president).
