Alisson signs long-term contract with Liverpool

Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson Becker has signed a new long-term contract with the Merseyside club, ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

Alisson has signed a six-year contract that will keep him at Anfield until 2027, which will make him one of Liverpool’s highest earners, reward for his superb performances since joining the club from Italian Serie A side, AS Roma in 2018.

The 28-year-old Brazilian becomes the latest Reds star to sign a long-term deal with the club, following in the footsteps of Trent Alexander-Arnold and compatriot Fabinho, who both signed a five-year deal earlier this week.

After signing the new contract, Alisson spoke with liverpoolfc.com, and he said: “Me and my family, we are really happy here. My kids are settled in England, in a different country, but they are growing up in that way.”

The Brazilian shot-stopper continued: “So we are really happy. I’m really glad that I can keep going on with my work here, doing a good job here. So, I’m really happy to make this decision – that is not hard for me.”

Speaking ahead of the team goals for the new season, Alisson said: “We have to set goals and we have to set them high – winning everything that we are playing [for], the Champions League, Premier League, the cups, everything. I think we can start from there.

“But obviously winning depends on what we will put on the pitch, what we will give on the pitch and we have to give 100 per cent at least. If we can push harder, we will go.”
