Liverpool’s Alisson ‘has desire’ to return to Brazil with Internacional

Alisson’s Liverpool stint

Alisson joined Liverpool in the summer of 2018 from AS Roma.

The Brazilian has since gone on to play a crucial role in transforming Liverpool’s previously shaky backline.

His debut campaign in England saw Alisson notch 21 clean sheets in 38 Premier League outings whilst also keeping six clean sheets on route to Liverpool’s 2019 Champions League triumph.

The stopper also managed 15 shutouts in 29 league ties last term, with Liverpool, of course, going on to secure their first-ever league title.

Alisson’s future plans

Alisson still has just under four years left on his current Liverpool contract.

And at 28, the Liverpool no.1 is still fairly young for a goalkeeper.

Despite this, whilst on international duty with Brazil, Alisson has been drawn on his future plans during an interview with Globoesporte.

When asked about his future plans, Alisson stated that he wishes to play as much as he can at a high level. However, he also admitted he has a desire to return to Brazil:

“I never went to make many long-term plans. Of course, I had dreams, but always with my feet on the ground and very focused on what I have in hand, what I can do now in the present. Determining a target, but making things happen in the now, knowing that the future depends on the now. I have plans to make a long career in football, to play as much as I can at a high level. Now if it will be up to 35, 40 or more than 40 I don’t know, I have a lot of road there.

“I hope to do my best while in the national team and in Europe. I have the desire to return to Brazil, but when it will happen, only God knows. We make plans, but I certainly know that God has something ready for me in the future, but I am living in the present for now.”

Alisson was then asked if his return to Brazil would be to his former club, Internacional, or somewhere else, to which he responded:

“I know that God has something for me, I want to follow God’s plans for my life, but my heart’s desire for when I return to Brazil, if God goes to serve him, is to return to Inter, home, the club that I love.”
