Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson Becker’s father Jose Becker dies after drowning in Brazil

The father of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker drowned in a lake near his holiday home in southern Brazil on Wednesday, February, 24.

Jose Becker, 57, had been swimming at a dam on his property when the accident happened, Doroteo Machado Filho, a police inspector in the town of Lavras do Sul, told Reuters. 

He was first declared missing at 5pm local time on Wednesday, and later found on the property of his holiday home near the town of Rincao do Inferno at 11:59pm after a local fire department joined the search, according to ESPN Brazil. 

Foul play was not suspected, local police said.

Brazilian club Internacional, who Alisson and his younger brother Muriel both 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.
