Roma’s backup goalkeeper Alisson has spoken to Roma TV about his first season in Italy and how he has settled into life in Italy, following his transfer from Internacional last summer. The full interview follows below.
Corriere dello Sport (Roberto Maida) Looking calm and relaxed, Alisson Becker enjoyed a famous night in Brazil where some people are asking if Roma have quite understood what they have. He played as captain against Argentina and kept out such strikers as Messi and Higuain, but most of all he sent a clear message to Spalletti ahead of the derby when he made a fine save from Lazio’s Biglia to stop him scoring a goal from long range.
Officially a decision hasn’t yet been taken, but the busy fixture schedule that Roma are about to embark on suggests the need for a more precise choice to be made. Luciano Spalletti has consequently started studying Roma’s fixture programme from the point of view of his goalkeepers, as he is still undecided in the choice between Alisson and Szczesny.
