ALISSON has warned Liverpool fans to expect more heart-attack moments with him in goal — as he will not stop taking risks on the ball.
The Reds keeper, 25, has quickly become known at last season’s Champions League finalists for his silky skills after CHIPPING Brighton’s Anthony Knockaert outside his area last week.
And Alisson — a £67million signing from Roma — says the style of play under boss Jurgen Klopp has encouraged him to stick to his guns.
The Brazil No 1 said: “I take risks. It is calculated.
“Fans with heart problems have to be careful!
“But on the pitch I do not try to make of fun of a rival. It’s not to show that I can do this or that, but to help the team. It is to achieve targets.
“I make a dribble or a simple pass, knowing if I lose the ball near the area the opponent can score.
“I am aware of what I do on the pitch, but I always do it to help the team. That’s why occasionally I also boot the ball into the stands.”
Speaking to ESPN, he added: “I have fitted perfectly in the team’s style of play — it has similar characteristics to the Brazil national team.
“Liverpool like the keeper to participate in the offensive phase and in shaping the game from the back.
“I am very happy to be in this great club, with players of great quality and within the pitch they are showing a lot of confidence in me.”
Klopp’s men have carried on their fine form from last season, winning their first three games while scoring seven and conceding none.
Alisson added: “We have started the season very well but we have to keep our feet on the ground.
