The Brazilian keeper spoke to ‘Sky Sport Italia’ to discuss Roma‘s Champions League draw against Liverpool.
This is what Alisson Becker had to say to the Italian satellite channel in reference to the UCL draw and the forthcoming derby against Lazio.
UCL DRAW – “It’s definitely exciting to know who you are going to face. Liverpool is a great team that is doing well this season. They still haven’t lost in the Champions League this season. They will be a tough opponent.”
“It will be nice to see Salah, we love him. Firmino is a good friend of mine as well, but they are all great players.”
PAULINHO AND STADIO OLIMPICO – “I wrote to Paulinho and he believes that we are a great side, he congratulated us. He was impressed by the atmosphere at the Stadio Olimpico and he told me that we can do great things.”
DERBY – “The derby is important for this city and also for us too. They are doing well. We have to play with great discipline; Milinkovic and Immobile are top players. It’ll be a good game.”
DI FRANCESCO – “The boss decides the formation. It worked well against Barcelona, but the squad must follow his [EDF] directives. We had the desire to play a great game and now we want to do that again. But we must keep our feet on the ground.”
HIS FUTURE – “My future is the present and my present is Roma. I’m happy here and my family too. I have a great relationship with my teammates. We have to qualify for the Champions League again. My mind is focused on this.”
