Alisson Becker has promised to deliver on his promise to perform on stage, particularly if Liverpool win the Premier League title.
Alisson, a passionate guitarist and singer, was interviewed in February by musician Jamie Webster where he promised to play at a BOSS Night event if the Reds had won the Champions League.
Although Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Tottenham Hotspur in the June final to lift the sixth European Cup, the goalkeeper has yet to make an appointment.
But Alisson is adamant that he will honor his vow to show his musical ribs in public.
“I wish, because I made a promise,” said the Brazilian international. “If we win the Premier League, I will go back!
“Since I was 13 I started playing just because I like it. I taught myself and I had fun. It is a moment that I enjoy with my family and my daughter.
“They like it when I play for them and we dance together and I think music is life, music brings happiness for everyone. I like many types of music.”
Alisson was part of the Liverpool team that followed the Champions League success by being crowned FIFA Club World Cup winner when he beat Flamengo in the Qatar final last weekend.
The Brazilian club was struck by the February tragedy when 10 teenage players were killed by a fire in their training camp in Rio.
And Alisson admits that he had a particular reason for being hit by the disaster.
“I lived what those kids lived,” he said. “I lived away from home adapting to myself and club supporters, my former clubs supported me early in my career and gave me all the conditions to become a great player.
“But not just to become a great player but a good person – to teach me to look for life and not just look for the field as a player. Be a good human being.
“We have to learn from that tragedy so that it doesn’t happen again. Those boys had life in front of them. They had the same dreams as me. “
Alisson graduated from his hometown Internacional, based in Porto Alegre. And the goalkeeper believes that the city and its current home in Liverpool have significant problems in common.
“I think both cities and both countries have their problems,” he added. “In Italy they too have their problems with poverty.
“It’s not just Brazil. Maybe you don’t have favelas in Rome but you have poverty and I think people should look for more for those people.
“I try to do my part on this to help children. I work in Brazil with children and will do even more when I finish my career. Now I need to focus on my work and try to help as much as I can.”
