Klopp said: "There was a world-class goalkeeper in the market, and the club gave us the opportunity to sign him, it is as simple as that". We don't think about that.
At long last, Liverpool have signed the top-class goalkeeper they've lacked since Pepe Reina. This year there was the chance.
Liverpool are paying an initial £56 million plus £9 million in add-ons.
"In terms of my life and my career, it's a huge step for me being part of this club and this family", Alisson added.
However, just a few weeks ago we probably would have laughed at the fact Pickford is one of the most expensive numbers ones in history, but his performances for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer have deservedly catapulted the youngster towards the world class bracket. "I tried to focus on the end of the season with Monaco, but when you are aware a club of Liverpool's dimension is interested in your services, obviously it touches you", he said.
"What are you waiting for?" he text Alisson, the goalkeeper revealed after joining the Reds.More news: Donald Trump calls negative coverage of his Putin meeting 'fake news'
Alisson is now the world's most expensive goalkeeper, trumping the £34.7m paid by Manchester City for compatriot Ederson a year ago, and Kirkland is optimistic that the 25-year-old will be given plenty of time and support by the Reds faithful.
"The job of a sporting director is not just to make signings but also to understand what's best for the club at any given time", said Monchi as he reflected on Alisson's transfer. But while the mere mention of Loris Karius' display at Kiev's Olimpiyskiy Stadium is like to send Liverpool supporters into despair, they can rest assured that Alisson is a fine shot-stopper who played an outstanding role in Roma's impressive campaign last season.
Alisson played in all five of Brazil's matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, where A Seleção were eliminated in the quarter-finals after a 2-1 defeat to Belgium.
"He's a very calm person".
Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC's website, new signing Alisson said: "I have great expectations [about working with Klopp]".
"I'll join this project straight away, I hope to adapt as soon as possible".
