Alisson recovers, returns to training

Liverpool first-choice goalkeeper Alisson has returned to training after fully recovering from a hip injury. It can be recalled that the Brazilian was forced out of Liverpool’s final three matches before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 27-year-old picked up the injury in training ahead of Liverpool’s 2 nil loss to Chelsea in the 5th round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge on March 3.

Adrian was called upon to fill the void as they beat Bournemouth in the Premier League. This was before a nightmare showing in the Last 16 of the UEFA Champions League against Atletico Madrid where the Reds were kicked out after suffering defeats over the two legs.

Alisson stepped up his recuperation after the UK was placed under lockdown with the aid of a strict programme from home by Liverpool’s fitness staff. The club’s goalkeeping coach John Achterberg has not delivered an update on Alisson’s situation via the Reds’ official website.

“[Alisson] sent videos, doing some jumping and exercises. Obviously, we were working with him until the lockdown and he was basically fit.

“Now it’s for him to maintain it in the house, like the other goalkeepers. They all get their programmes from the fitness department so they will do the job and the work to try to stay as fit as they can, like all the other players as well.”
