Watch: ‘More like Ian Rush’ – Jurgen Klopp jokes about Alisson’s moustache


With no Premier League football to watch, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has sent social media into a frenzy by sporting a new moustache. 

The goalkeeper would normally be away on international duty with Brazil, but Conmebol confirmed earlier this month that World Cup qualifiers in South America were to be postponed.

He used his time to shave most of his facial hair off but decided to leave himself with a bushy moustache. 

The 28-year-old showed up to Liverpool training doing his best Pablo Escobar impression and many fans have backed the Brazilian’s new look. 

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also seemed to give it his seal of approval and joked that Alisson looks like former Red Ian Rush.
