Internacional has reported that Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker’s father died in a horrific accident after drowning in a lake.

The news was released on the official Twitter account of the Brazilian club in the early hours of Thursday morning, with Internacional offering their strength and support to Jose Agostinho Becker’s family and friends.

ESPN Brasil states that after consultation with the Cacapava do Sul Fire Department and the Lavras do Sul Civil Police, Alisson’s 57-year-old father’s body was discovered after he was reported missing.

According to Reuters, local police reported that Jose Agostinho Becker died after swimming in a lake near his southern Brazilian holiday home.

On their official Twitter page in the early hours of Thursday morning, expressing their sorrow at the news, Internacional wrote: “It is with great sadness that we have received the news of the death of Jose Agostinho Becker, father of our former goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel.”

In this moment of so much suffering, Clube do Povo wishes strength to his family and friends.

Sao Paulo also shared his condolences and posted on Twitter the following message: “Sao Paulo receives, with deep regret, the sad news of the death of Jose Agostinho Becker, father of the goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel.”

Our condolences to the two players and their families and our solidarity with them. We wish them a great deal of power and a good deal of light.

With Internacional, Alisson started his professional career 115 times for the Brazilian club before transferring to Roma in 2016.

Back in 2018, the 28-year-old explained how Jose Agostinho Becker influenced his decision to become a goalkeeper, having also played in the role with his father.

He told the official club website of Liverpool: “I have a goalkeeping family: my dad played for his work team, my mom played school handball, and my grandfather played amateur football.

And after all this, my brother came and played, and then I began to like it, too. I started watching him work out and then began to feel a passion for the job. They’re in my blood, they’re in my family, so I started following them.”
