"I'm really happy, it's a dream come true to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size that is used to always winning", Alisson said after completing his move.

Jurgen Klopp has revealed his plans for Alisson's Liverpool debut, and how the Brazilian's arrival will impact Loris Karius' position at the club.

"We had a few midfielders before but we brought another two in".

"That's a problem, whatever b******t you say, no one will forget it", Klopp told reporters on Saturday.


The 26-year-old only played in two of Egypt's three games in Russian Federation this summer and struggled to replicate his record-breaking Liverpool form as a result of the injury. I know he is not known for his aggression but that is something I have added to my game, even if it is not one of his traits.

"We have a really good squad". That is maybe the only difference.

"But for that to happen and we need a stronger squad around and Loris is an outstanding goalkeeper".

"Better players than we already have are not waiting around the corner".


"That's what we have tried to do".

Emre Can's departure for Juventus and a serious injury to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have opened the door for Fabinho and Keita, whilst Alisson will take the place of the much-questioned Lídia Karius. "I could see how the club was developing and I spoke at length with Sadio [Mane]", Guinea's star footballer said. "He's desperate to play". He could have joined us here in America but it made absolutely no sense.

"He's had a long year". As Brazil No 1, it was quite an intense year!

"Whatever people say about that - and bring it up again and again and again, what I said - I've had worse days in my life and I've said worse things, so all good, I'm fine with that". [Xherdan] Shaqiri, we saw him play in the World Cup.


A clip of Karius making a shocking mistake in the warm-up for the Reds' first pre-season friendly against Chester went viral and his shakiness was on full display again in their next game, when he dropped an atrocious clanger against Tranmere Rovers.
