EDF: Roma want to beat Alisson

Eusebio Di Francesco says Roma ‘hope to meet Alisson in the Champions League and beat him’ after the goalkeeper’s transfer to Liverpool.

Alisson kept goal for Roma during their run to the Champions League semi-finals, where their progress was halted by Liverpool, and Di Francesco made it clear he sought revenge, despite the Brazilian now playing for the Reds.

“Justin did well. He must assimilate certain movements, but he did them well 3-4 times, even if he must be more polished in one-on-ones,” the Coach said after Friday’s 1-1 draw with Avellino.

“On the whole, however, it was a good test for the players. Malcom? I won’t about players who aren’t in my team.

“Monchi’s the one who’s been talking a lot about the market, he’s dealing with it first hand.

“Alisson? We hope to meet him in the Champions League and beat him, like I told him today when he came to say goodbye.”
