REDS TRAGEDY

The father of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has died after his body was found in a lake near the family home.

Local police have told Brazilian media that Jose Agostinho Becker, 57, is believed to have drowned after disappearing near a dam.

Jose is understood to have gone for a swim near his property in Lavras do Sul, in southern Brazil.

After he was declared missing, a friend of his and an employee of the family estate discovered the body on Wednesday evening.

Police arrived on the scene and his death is being treated as an accident.

Like his two sons, Liverpool’s Alisson, 28, and Fluminense’s Muriel, 34, Jose was a goalkeeper.

He played in amateur leagues in Brazil, as did Alisson’s grandfather, and has been described as a huge influence on his sons’ careers.
