Alisson: It was emotional to leave Rome for Liverpool.


Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson revealed that he was reduced to tears when he made the decision to leave Rome in the summer.

The 26-year-old became the most expensive goalkeeper in the world when he moved to Anfield in July for 67 million pounds.
But if it was the Gazzetta Dello Sport, Alisson acknowledged that it was a bad idea to break ties with Rome after making 37 appearances in the Serie A club.
“Leaving Rome was difficult,” he said. “I cried a lot of time with my wife.
“To be honest, it’s true, I made a professional choice, a step forward for my career and Roma won a lot.
“I decided to go to Liverpool with my mind, but my heart was still full of tears.
“I spent two special years in Rome, my daughter was born there, I have many friends there, even outside of football.
“So many times I made a tour of the city: the Trevi Fountain, in the darkness, is so beautiful that you move, but my favorite place is the Colosseum, where you breathe the story.”

Alisson was widely praised for his performances for Liverpool this season, in addition to his costly mistake in Leicester, which he said made him “angry.”
The Brazilian international, who is preparing for Liverpool’s Champions League game on Italian soil in Naples on Wednesday, wondered if he planned to stay in Rome after the World Cup.
“The thought crossed my mind many times because I was very happy in Rome,” he added.
“But when a player chooses where to play, the discussion is broader, I have big ambitions, Liverpool, too, and now I play in the most important league in the world.

“The Serie A is not so far behind, but it’s different, less intense.”
