In 2018, Alisson spoke of how his father had been a goalkeeper, just like him:

“I have a family of goalkeepers. My father played for his work team, my mother played handball in school, and my grandfather played in amateur football.”

“And after all this, came my brother playing and then I started to like it, too.”

Tributes paid to Jose Becker

On the back of the awful news arriving on Thursday morning, Brazilian clubs have begun to pay tribute to Jose Becker.

Alisson’s former club, Internacional, posted on social media:

‘It is with great sadness that we received the news of the death of José Agostinho Becker, father of our former goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel. Clube do Povo wishes strength to family and friends in this moment of so much pain.’

Sao Paulo posted:

‘With much regret, São Paulo FC receives the sad news of the death of José Agostinho Becker, father of goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel. Our condolences and solidarity with the two athletes and their families. A lot of strength and a lot of light at this point.’

Fluminense posted:

‘The Fluminense Football Club deeply regrets the death of José Agostinho Becker, father of goalkeepers Muriel and Alisson. We wish all friends and family all the strength.’

As the news continues to spread, further tributes are likely to be paid. Everyone at 101 sends their best wishes to Alisson and his family at this difficult time.
