Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson hands Karius number boost - if he stays

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has refused to take the No1 shirt away from Loris Karius.

UOL Esporte says Alisson passed up the opportunity to take the number out of respect for his goalkeeping counterpart.

Alisson is set to take the No.13 shirt next term, meaning Karius will keep hold of No.1.

It appears the Liverpool new boy made the gesture with Karius low on confidence following his Champions League final woe.

Karius could still leave Anfield this summer with Bayer Leverkusen tipped to make a move.

Jurgen Klopp is believed to be considering letting Karius and Simon Mignolet depart, with Barcelona interested in the Belgian stopper.
