Liverpool’s first team goalkeeper Alisson Becker, has lost his 57 year old father Jose Agostinho Becker, to a swimming accident in Brazil.
Local police inspector Doroteo Machado Filho, says Becker drowned in a dam close to his holiday home in Lavras do Sul.
Liverpool has since shown their support for their goalkeeper, as they released a statement saying they were “deeply saddened” by the death of his father, and requested for privacy on behalf of Alisson and his family.
Alisson’s team-mates at Anfield Adrian and Virgil van Dijk, have also expressed their support for Allison on social media, with Van Dijk saying “We are all with you hermano” on an instagram post.
One of Allison’s rivals in the Premier League David de Gea, has also sent his condolences in an online post.
