Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson is set to make his return to Italy on Wednesday as Liverpool travel to the San Paolo to face Napoli in the second matchday of the Champions League group stages. The Reds' shot-stopper told La Gazzetta dello Sport about his feelings when he parted ways with his former club Roma and why he decided to join the English side.
"Leaving Roma was tough, me and my wife cried a lot. I want to be honest: I made a career choice, a step forward in my career and Roma got a huge fee fro my sale. My head decided to go to Liverpool, but my heart was full of tears. I spent two amazing years in Rome, I used to walk around the city at night, the beauty of the city is breath-taking. I often thought about spending my whole career at Roma, I felt great there. But when it comes to choosing a club you have to consider the bigger picture.
I have great ambitions and so do Liverpool, now I play in the most important league in the world. I don't think there is a huge gap between Serie A and Premier League, they're just different. The Kop or Curva Sud? They are both amazing supporters, like few others in the world. You can feel the Kop, but als the Curva Sud it's great to watch when it's full".
