Tributes after father of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker found dead
Jose Becker, the father of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson, had gone missing on Wednesday afternoon before being found dead
The father of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has passed away in Brazil.
Jose Becker's body is reported to have been found around midnight in the city of Bage after a swimming incident.
Mr Becker went missing on Wednesday afternoon after diving into the dam on his property near the town of Rincao do Inferno in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
The 57-year-old was reported as missing at around 5pm local time on February 24.
The Fire Department of Cacapava do Sul were called to the scene before news emerged out of the region later that evening that Mr Becker's body had been located.
Various reports across Brazil emerged in the early hours of Thursday morning before the tragic news was confirmed by both Fluminense and Sao Paulo's official Twitter accounts.
"The Fluminense Football Club deeply regrets the death of Jose Agostinho Becker, father of goalkeepers Muriel and Alisson." tweeted Fluminense.
"We wish all friends and family all the strength."
Sao Paulo tweeted to their 4.4m followers: "With much regret, Sao Paulo FC receives the sad news of the death of Jose Agostinho Becker, father of goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel.
"Our condolences and solidarity with the two athletes and their families. A lot of strength and a lot of light at this point."
The club who Alisson started his professional career with, Internacional, also offered 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," they posted.
"Clube do Povo wishes strength to family and friends in this moment of so much pain."
Alisson's father was a huge influence on his decision to become a goalkeeper as a junior footballer.
In 2018, the Reds shot-stopper said: “I have a family of goalkeepers.
“My father played for his work team, my mother played handball in school, and my grandfather played in amateur football.
"And after all this, came my brother playing and then I started to like it, too."
That's all for now from Anfield.
