Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker revealed his love for Jesus when celebrating winning the Champions League.
After their 2-nil win over Tottenham Hotspur, Alisson stripped down to a T-shirt picturing ‘the cross = love’.
The Brazilian player praised God on social media when he got his first chance to play in a World Cup and has said in an interview for his previous team Roma’s website that he doesn’t have any pre-match routines: “the only thing I do is point to the sky. I’m a Christian so I’m not a superstitious person.”
This would be the best time to honour a goalkeeper. Until now no goalkeeper has ever won a #BallondOr and I presume, it would be a close contest between Van Dijk and @Alissonbecker. I won’t be surprised if Alisson receives the honour this time around. 🇧🇷 pic.twitter.com/UXeAzNr1Aw

When asked if he had any advice for future goalkeepers, he said: “If you want to be a great keeper, you need to work very hard. That’s what I do. You need to be very focused on football and I think faith is important too. If you believe in God, you know you have to do your best on the pitch and put love into everything you do in life.”
On Saturday, Mo Salah scored Liverpool’s first goal in Madrid, just two minutes in from a penalty.
