Alisson has signed a long-term contract extension with Liverpool. 

Alisson joined Liverpool from Roma in 2018.

"Me and my family, we are really happy here," Alisson told the club's official website. "My kids are settled in England, in a different country, but they are growing up in that way. So we are really happy.

"I'm really glad that I can keep going on with my work here, doing a good job here. So, I'm really happy to make this decision -- that is not hard for me.

"We have to set goals and we have to set them high -- winning everything that we are playing [for], the Champions League, Premier League, the cups, everything. I think we can start from there.

"But obviously winning depends on what we will put on the pitch, what we will give on the pitch and we have to give 100 per cent at least. If we can push harder, we will go."

Jun 13, 2021 8:33 AM

Georginio Wijnaldum has said he thought he was going to join Barcelona this summer after leaving Liverpool but the move never materialized and he instead joined Paris Saint-Germain.

"What I can say is that I made a different choice," Wijnaldum said in Saturday's press conference.

"It was a difficult choice. We negotiated with Barcelona for four weeks, but we have not come to an agreement. PSG was more decisive and faster. The project also really appealed to me. But it was difficult. I have to say that I also thought I would go to Barcelona. That was the only club that was really interested in me for a long time."

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool In Champions League Is 'Massive Achievement'

May 23, 2021 5:26 PM

Jurgen Klopp praised the achievement of Liverpool making the Champions League on the final day of the season, with his side finishing in third place in the Premier League.

“This is big," said Klopp after Sunday's game. "If someone had told me five or six weeks ago that we would finish the season in third, I would have said it was impossible. It was absolutely out of reach. But the good thing this year is how we responded when we didn’t feel good because too many things happened to us."

Klopp would then praise Liverpool's centerback pairing of Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams for stabilizing the team.

“Today they [Williams and Phillips] both get cut and we had to fight through. How they played is absolutely incredible. The steps they made this year were on a different level. To fight through all this and finish third is the best lesson you could learn for life. From nowhere to the Champions League in five weeks is a massive achievement," said Klopp.

Klopp also confirmed that Gini Wijnaldum would leave the side on a free transfer this summer.
