Alisson Becker has vowed to make good his promise to perform on stage – particularly if Liverpool win the Premier League title.
Alisson, a keen guitarist and singer, was interviewed back in February by musician Jamie Webster where he promised to play at a BOSS Night event if the Reds won the Champions League.
But Alisson is adamant he will honour his vow to show his musical chops in public.
“I wish, because I made a promise,” said the Brazil international. “If we win the Premier League, I will go back!
“Since I was 13 I started to play just because I enjoy it. I taught myself and just enjoyed it. It’s a moment I enjoy with my family and my daughter.
“They enjoy it when I play for them and we dance together and I think music is life, music brings happiness for everybody. I like many kinds of music.”
The Brazilian club were struck by tragedy in February when 10 teenage players were killed by a fire at their training ground in Rio.
And Alisson admits he had particular reason to be affected by the disaster.
“I lived what those boys lived,” he said. “I lived away from home adjusting for myself and the club supporters me, my former clubs supported me all the beginning of my career and they gave me all the conditions to become a great player.
“But not just to become a great player but a good person – to teach me to look for the whole life and not just look for the pitch as a player. To be a good human being.
“We need to learn from that tragedy so it doesn’t happen again.Those boys had their lives in front of them. They had the same dreams as me.”

Alisson made the grade in his homeland at Internacional, based in Porto Alegre. And the goalkeeper believes the city and his current home of Liverpool have significant issues in common.
“I think both cities and both countries, they have their problems,” he added. “In Italy also they also their problems with poverty.
“It’s not just Brazil. Maybe you don’t have favelas in Rome but you have poverty and I think the people should look more for those people.
“I try to do my part on this to help children. I do some work in Brazil with children and I will do even more when I finish my career. Now I need to focus on my job and I try to help as much as I can.”
