Brazil source have revealed reason why Alisson opted not to take the no.1 shirt
- Alisson chose to wear number 13 jersey out of respect for Karius
UOL claim that the Brazilian keeper made a friendly gesture for Loris after arriving at Anfield. Karius is demoted to a sub role now and Alisson understood that taking the no.1 could be another blow to his colleague after facing a storm of criticism in media for his howlers vs Real Madrid.
However, the report adds that Alisson could still wear the no.1 jersey if Karius decides to leave the club before the transfer deadline.
