Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has thanked supporters for their messages and tributes to his father, who died after drowning in a lake near his holiday home in southern Brazil on Wednesday.
Jose Becker, 57, had been swimming at a dam on his property when the accident happened on Wednesday afternoon, Doroteo Machado Filho, a police inspector in the town of Lavras do Sul, told Reuters. No foul play was suspected.
Brazilian club Internacional, who both Alisson and his brother Muriel played for, tweeted their condolences.
“It is with great sadness that we received the news of Jose Agostinho Becker’s death, the father of our ex-goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel,” the club said.
