Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker revealed his love for Jesus when celebrating winning the Champions League.
After their 2-nil win over Tottenham Hotspur, Alisson stripped down to a T-shirt picturing ‘the cross = love’.
The Brazilian player praised God on social media when he got his first chance to play in a World Cup and has said in an interview for his previous team Roma’s website that he doesn’t have any pre-match routines: “the only thing I do is point to the sky. I’m a Christian so I’m not a superstitious person.”
When asked if he had any advice for future goalkeepers, he said: “If you want to be a great keeper, you need to work very hard. That’s what I do. You need to be very focused on football and I think faith is important too. If you believe in God, you know you have to do your best on the pitch and put love into everything you do in life.”
