Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson’s father, Jose Becker, drowned in the Camaqua River in Lavras do Sul, a Brazilian town. When his disappearance was confirmed, Jose had been bathing on the family estate. His body was identified only a few hours later. He was 57 years old and the media confirmed that his body was searched without success by firefighters before it was located in the last moments of the search.
And the other son of Jose, Muriel, is a goalkeeper, and he’s wearing a Fluminense shirt, much as Jose did in his youth.
He never reached the strongest Brazilian league, but he had an immense influence on Alisson and Muriel’s careers.
