Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has shed light on why he chose to join the Reds rather than Chelsea in the summer.

Alisson has revealed that Liverpool's history played a part in his decision to join them instead of Chelsea.

The Brazilian is the second most expensive goalkeeper ever after the Reds splashed out £67 million (R1.19 billion) on him, snubbing interest from Chelsea in the process.

"I chose Liverpool for the same reasons I went to Roma when I first left Brazil - I thought this would be the best move for my career".

"Not only between the goalkeepers, but I also know that I have to be ready for if anything happens or the team needs me, and therefore I have to be working hard on a daily basis for when the chance comes along or I get called upon".

While the club crashed out of the FA Cup following a loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Liverpool still remain at the top of the Premier League table with 54 points. "I've spoken about it before - it's not something that you want to be doing, but the team is doing so well and you just try to help the team as best as you can".

"What's life if not fighting for your dreams?".

Last year, LaLiga giants Real Madrid achieved a dominating win over Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool to win their third consecutive UEFA Champions League title. Have your say in the comment section below.

Karius made two awful mistakes in Kiev, resulting in Liverpool losing 3-1 to Real Madrid.

"I was so sad to see what happened to Karius - it could have happened to anyone", he said of the German stopper's howlers in last year's Champions League final, which marked the death knell of Karius' Anfield career and, consequently, the beginning of his own.
