Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com in Evian shortly after penning the deal, Alisson said he was ‘really happy’ to extend his stay.

He said: “I think as you are getting older, you are building a family, you start to think more in your family than in yourself, in your professional terms – but still you have to think on that.

“or me professionally, it’s the best decision, it’s the same decision as I took when I first came here.

“Since I arrived here, I started to win trophies with this amazing team, with this amazing group. I started to develop myself in many aspects in football, in my life.

“Also my family. Ray, the team manager, he told me once a sentence about the family – ‘Happy wife, happy life.’ My wife is really happy here, in England, she’s happy for my children, for myself, for herself as well.

“We found a purpose in our life here and I’m really, really happy to continue wearing this shirt.”

On Tuesday, Brazilian midfielder Fabinho put pen to paper on a new five-year deal, keeping him at Anfield until 2026.
