A group of Liverpool fans have taken to social media to respond to footage of Alisson Becker having his hair cut. The Brazilian stopper shared the clip via his Instagram account and a still image of it was captured and posted on Twitter by @AnfieldWatch.
The Reds signed the 27-year-old from Italian giants Roma back in July 2018 in a deal reportedly worth £56.25m (as per Transfermarkt.co.uk). Since his arrival, he has made 79 appearances for the club, keeping an impressive 41 clean sheets so far.
How have the Anfield faithful responded to the post on Twitter?

Is Alisson the world's best goalkeeper?
It’s clear from the above responses that these supporters have taken this as a sign of things returning to something close to normality, as the Premier League looks to emerge from the global pandemic that saw it brought to an abrupt halt in March. Alisson has earned an average performance rating in the Premier League this season of 6.75/10 according to WhoScored.com, which on the surface doesn’t necessarily sound great – but the fact he has conceded just 11 goals in the competition tells another story.
Some fans, however, were less thrilled by the player’s decision to change his look.

Liverpool are just two victories away from being crowned Premier League champions, which would see Alisson win his first league title with the Reds. In our view, he is already well on his way to becoming a club legend, despite not even having been at the club for two years, such has been the level of his success since switching to Anfield.
