Alisson: New Liverpool signing reveals Mohamed Salah text message

It was confirmed this evening that Liverpool had signed Alisson from Roma in a deal worth £65million.

Alisson played with Salah for one season at Roma but the pair appear to have built up a rapport.

And the goalkeeper revealed the Egypt star told him to follow the same path he took last year.

“We didn’t have that much contact after he left Roma. We met again in the game when we were up against each other [in the Champions League in April],” Alisson told

“Yesterday, he sent me a message saying: ‘Hey, what are you waiting for?’ As the negotiations were at an advanced stage, I replied to him straight away saying: ‘Calm down, I’m on my way!’

“I’m really happy to have the opportunity to play alongside him again. As well as being a great player, he is a huge character and a great person – which is the most important thing.

“To be with these great people and players day to day is fantastic for me.”
