Alisson Becker has revealed that Jurgen Klopp treats his Liverpool FC players “like his sons”.

The Brazil international moved to Liverpool FC in a £67m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2018 summer transfer window.

Alisson’s arrival at Anfield was a big moment for the Reds after Klopp finally addressed a clear weakness in his Liverpool FC team.

The South American shot-stopper has excelled in his first Premier League season after keeping 17 clean sheets in 31 games.

Liverpool FC have the best defensive record in the English top flight after conceding a mere 17 goals this term.

Klopp’s side are in second place in the Premier League table with eight games to go in the title race.

The German head coach and his players have been accused of letting the pressure get to them in recent weeks.

But Alisson has provided some insight into how Klopp has been treating his players at Liverpool FC of late.

“He’s a great guy, a good guy I think in the way he deals with everyone,” Alisson told Sky Sports.

“He treats us I think like his own sons and he treats everyone in the dressing room as equals, the staff and everyone. This is what makes him a special person for us.

“He’s a funny guy, but on the pitch when it is the time to work he’s a serious and passionate guy for football.

“He gives his passion for me and my team-mates in the game so this is very good.”

Liverpool FC were 4-2 winners against Burnley at Anfield in the Premier League last weekend.

The Reds had to fight back from 1-0 down to secure three points against Burnley to maintain pressure on Manchester City in the title race.

The Merseyside outfit are looking to win the Premier League title for the first time this season.
