Alisson admits Liverpool’s title-winning campaign was ‘one of the most exhausting seasons’ of his career after helping the club finally end a three decade title drought.
Liverpool were crowned as champions of England for the first time since 1990, winning a maiden Premier League title in record-breaking fashion as Jurgen Klopp’s side added to the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup honours won earlier in the campaign.
The Reds’ title-winning campaign lasted almost a full calendar year with the season broken up by an unprecedented three-month suspension amid the coronavirus pandemic, and Alisson admits the club’s Premier League pursuit left him feeling physically and mentally exhausted.
“This was one of the most exhausting seasons I’ve ever had,” Alisson told ESPN Brasil. “I don’t know if it was due to the pandemic, the longer season, but it was also one of the seasons I played less games because of injuries.
“We got out of the Champions League early, but I think this exhaustion comes from just giving everything we have every time.
“Klopp has a great portion of that, just telling us what the main objective is.
“We also care about how we are going to get to that objective – training, just how he manages our training sessions. He trusts us to do what he wants us to do, on not only training sessions, but also a day-to-day basis.
“Our group is certainly very strong. Each player has so much quality individually, and we have at least four players always at the top, the best in the world in their positions, and that makes it a special team, but what really makes a difference is the way we play together.
“We think as one, we all have the same objective, and that is doing everything we can to get those goals, laying it all out mentally and physically.”
