Alisson warns Liverpool fans: Those with heart problems must be careful!

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has warned those fans with heart problems - I won't stop!

Alisson drew gasps and cheers from the Anfield crowd last weekend with some of his footwork, notably when dinking the ball over the oncoming Brighton and Hove Albion forward Anthony Knockaert.

But he told ESPN Brasil: “It is already calculated. I take risks. Fans with heart problems have to be careful! But on the pitch, as I said before, I do not try to make of fun of a rival. It's not to show that I can do this or that, but to help the team. It is to achieve targets.

“I make a dribble or a simple pass, knowing that if I lose the ball near the area the opponent can score. I am aware of what I do on the pitch, but I always do it to help the team. That's why occasionally I also boot the ball into the stands."

He added: “I am very happy to be in this great club, with players of great quality and within the pitch they are showing a lot of confidence in me. I feel confident to do that here."
