Revealed! Why New Signing Alisson Rejected Liverpool's No.1 Jersey

The reason new Liverpool Goalkeeper Alisson rejected the Club's no.1 jersey worn by Loris Karius has been revealed.

Alisson signed for Liverpool from AS Roma in a £65m deal which also made his the most expensive goalkeeper ever.

Karius, who made errors during the Champions League final against Real Madrid has also admitted he could leave the club following Alisson's arrival.

The German still has the No.1 jersey ahead of the new season and Liverpool have yet to officially confirm what number Alisson will wear.

And, According to Brazilan news Outlet UOL, Alisson was offered the chance to take the no.1 jersey from Karius but he rejected it.

UOL also claim that following conversations with the club, Alisson opted not to take the No.1 jersey “out of respect for Karius.”

Alisson is likely to still get the No.1 jersey if Loris Karius does leave before the end of the transfer window next Thursday.

Coach Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool’s official website, “We should not waste time. Yes, he will play. I’m very pleased [to be working with him] but first of all it’s very important he can start now because the season starts in one-and-a-half weeks.

“Each player in the world needs training and time to adapt to his teammates. We have two games to do that before we start so it’s really good.

“He obviously has a real presence, he’s smart, he’s very nice and it’s good to have him around.”

The Brazil international is set to make his debut in Liverpool's pre-season match against Napoli on Saturday.
