Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker says he is finding it difficult to understand some of his team-mates who have different accents.

The Brazilian says he struggles to understand teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold and also has to contend with Mackem Henderson, Glaswegian Robertson and Yorkshireman Milner.

The shot-stopper who arrived Anfield from Roma last summer says he finds it easier to understand his foreign team-mates when they speak English than the native Brits.

Allison says it is very difficult for him to understand Brummie and Yorkshire accents and also the scouse twang of Trent Alexander-Arnold and some other  training staff

Alisson told the Daily Star via The Mirror:

Sander Westerveld: “Alisson is the perfect goalkeeper”

The "perfect" Alisson Becker is one of the top goalkeepers in world football right now, says ex-Liverpool stopper Sander Westerveld.

“The British accent is hard for me to understand. In Brazil, we’re used to hearing American-English.

“It’s been easier to understand my non-English teammates speaking English than the local ones.

“Hopefully, I can improve my vocabulary.”

Alisson has had a brilliant season so far.
