Virgil Van Dijk believes it was the coziness and tight-knit family at Liverpool that helped Alisson Becker settle down quickly and hit the ground running.

The Brazilian shot-stopper made a key late save from Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik which ensured qualification into the second round of the UEFA Champions League for the Reds.

“He’s a fantastic keeper and showed it for Roma last season and now with us as well.” Van Dijk said, according to Mirror Football.

“He’s there when we need him. Hopefully, in the future we don’t need him too much but he’s doing his job, and very well.”

“He’s settled in well and that’s the help from everyone. I had the same when I came, same feeling, everyone helped me and made me feel at home within weeks.“

Meanwhile, Van Dijk also insists he made the right decision signing for Liverpool back in January.

“I definitely feel I have made the right decision to come here. But I already felt that in the summer when I had time to really think about my past six months.”

“We want to achieve big things, like everyone else in the League probably, but I want to achieve a lot of big things. I have a lot of dreams and hopefully I can reach those here.”
