World News – UA – Alisson curbs Liverpool’s early return to faith and hard work


Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson attributed his rapid recovery from his injury to prayer and six-hour daily rehab sessions at Melwood

Alisson made a surprise return to Liverpool’s starting lineup against Sheffield United on Saturday after missing four games with damaged shoulder ligaments

Jürgen Klopp was initially concerned that the injury at the training ground would put the Brazil international out of action for six weeks, but he was ultimately without him for just over three weeks The 28-year-old credits intensive physiotherapy and his outlook for halving expected recovery time

« I pray a lot Seriously, I pray a lot », replied Alisson when asked how he could have come back after three weeks. “I also did a lot of treatment sessions. I was every day for five or six hours at the club, receiving treatment with the physiotherapists, working with the fitness department, and after two weeks I was able to be new with goalkeeper coaches

« I couldn’t dive but after two and a half weeks I started diving Then, three days before the game, I started working hard – dealing with hard knocks, diving at broad spectrum, so Friday I gave the boss the green light I believe my faith and hard work helped me in this quick recovery « 

Alisson targeted a three-week absence as soon as he was told by a specialist to expect a longer layoff and insists he is « 100% » comfortable with play in competition again

« Every ligament injury you have, be it your ankle, shoulder or knee, you always feel something weird It’s not pain but you feel it for a few weeks It’s nothing which limits my way of playing I’m really capable of playing 100% and I’m comfortable with that

« It’s good to be back and I’m really happy… as soon as the doctor said it was going to be four to six weeks, I said, ‘No we’re going to two or three weeks max. ‘He agreed with me and we are going I just want to thank the physiotherapists, the fitness staff, the doctors and the goalie coaches who are helping me « 

Liverpool welcome FC Midtjylland to the Champions League on Tuesday with Alisson in line to make his first European appearance since February The former Roma goalkeeper missed Liverpool’s second-leg loss to Atlético Madrid last season in due to a hip injury His absence was felt badly as Adrián made decisive mistakes in the 3-2 setback that ended Liverpool’s 25-game unbeaten European streak at Anfield

“Not being involved is the worst thing for a football player, but unfortunately injuries are part of the job,” said Alisson “We try to avoid them with prevention work but sometimes they do happen


« I’m glad it was only three weeks, but it was three long weeks, it was like three months It was difficult not only to miss Atlético Madrid and Aston Villa [the 7-2 loss this season] because you always want to help your teammates and do what you love to do « 

Klopp will be deprived of the injured Thiago Alcântara, Naby Keïta and Joël Matip against the Danish champions who, despite losing their Champions League opener 4-0 at home against Atalanta last week, constitute a real threat, according to Liverpool manager

« We don’t see you as a small club, » Klopp told a Danish journalist. « We see you as a real challenger in this group

« Nobody is in a Champions League group because they come from a beautiful city or other Midtjylland is right there because they are a good football team and because they won the right to be in the Champions League the previous season After an impressive comeback against Brondby [Saturday], Midtjylland is once again at the top of the table, so they are good again

« I don’t know how many players they’ve lost since last year, but it’s just a good football team In football pretty much anything is possible and we’ve used it every now and then But I’m sure Midtjylland sees it exactly the same way They don’t wave the white flag already There are no smaller teams in the Champions League, there are only teams «
