Various reports coming from Brazil and Alisson’s former club Internacional have now confirmed that Liverpool goalkeeper’s father has passed away in a drowning accident. Jose Becker, 57, had been swimming in a lake near his holiday home in southern Brazil.
The news unfolded in a cruel manner for the Becker family as they were clinging on to hope when Alisson’s father was first reported missing 7 hours ago before the confirmation of his death arrived.
The shot-stopper is in a rough period as it is with Liverpool but that is nothing compared to the devastating loss of his father. Liverpool fans took to the internet to lend their support, check out the tweets below –

If the reports coming out from Brasil and widely circulated in social media, I can only pray for the family José Becker.
I am so very sorry hear about this.
