Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker’s father dies after drowning in Brazil

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has lost his father after a diving accident near his holiday home in southern Brazil.

ESPN reports that the 57-year-old Jose Becker had been swimming at a dam on his property and was initially reported missing on Wednesday evening with the fire department sending out a team to assist in the search.

Unluckily, the body was recovered around midnight and according to the police, there was no foul play suspected. It remains to be seen whether the Brazilian is given a compassionate leave so that he can be with his family in this time of need.

Liverpool is yet to release a statement on the same but Alisson’s former club Internacional tweeted their condolences earlier.

The news comes days after Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp lost his mother but was not allowed to attend her funeral because of the coronavirus restrictions.
