DUBLIN: Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will make his debut in Saturday’s friendly against Napoli, coach Jürgen Klopp has said.

Liverpool signed the 25-year-old Brazil international from AS Roma, smashing the world record for a goalkeeper in a deal worth up to 72.5 million euros (RM343.8 million).

Alisson started training with Liverpool earlier this week following a break after Brazil’s World Cup campaign.

“It’s pretty likely (he’ll make his debut). We should not waste time,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.

“Then it’ll be nearly a week, or six days in training, since he (started) and yes, he will play.”

Liverpool play their final pre-season friendly against Italian club Torino on August 7, five days before hosting West Ham United in their Premier League opener.
