Alisson trains with team-mates for the first time and says he already feels at home


can’t wait

The Brazil No. 1 had been on an extended break after the World Cup

Alisson took part in his first Liverpool training session on Tuesday and the Brazilian already feels at home.

The world-record signing from Roma linked up with Jurgen Klopp and his new team-mates for the first time at the start of a five-day training camp in France.

And the 25-year-old revealed he is fitting in rather quickly.

“It has been a great day which I had been looking forward to,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“I’ve had a good few resting days with my family but we all couldn’t wait to get the new season under way soon.

“It’s only my first day and I feel at home already!

“I’ve met some of my teammates and had my first morning session but the day isn’t over yet as we’ll carry on training this afternoon.”

Liverpool’s Premier League opener against West Ham at Anfield comes in just 12 days time on 12th August.

And Alisson believes he will be ready for the start of the season despite taking an extended break after the World Cup.

“Although these two weeks don’t seem like a long time, it’s enough for us to be ready for our first game against West Ham,” he added.

“We’ll play two friendlies before this game and I’m sure the hard work the squad have put in so far is going to help me become a member of the squad as quickly as possible so that I am 100 per cent ready for our first game to kick off the Premier League in a good way.

“This initial training session has been useful for me to see what our playing style should be in the Premier League.

“It’s also showed me that the team are very well adapted to it and everyone seems to be physically fit, not to say technically – they’re all great players after all.

“I’m very happy to have them alongside me and to be a part of this project that Liverpool have and the great work they have been doing over recent years.

“I hope I can help and bring something extra to the team.”
