The link between the two is Muriel, Alisson's elder brother and Pitaluga's former teammate.

  • Alisson Becker has been among the first Liverpool players to react to the news that the Reds have signed 17-year-old keeper Marcelo Pitaluga:
  • This should not come as a surprise to us: the youngster has arrived from Fluminense, the club Alisson's brother Muriel plays.
  • Moreover, during the winter break last season, Liverpool's No.1 trained with Fluminense alongside his brother - and apparently, Pitaluga as well.
  • There's little doubt that Alisson was quite impressed with what he saw from the teenager who will now train with Alisson almost every day.
