Liverpool Goalkeeper Alisson Becker Begins Training, After Revovery From A Hip Injury.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has recovered from a hip injury which he picked up 3 matches before the season was halted due to Coronavirus outbreak.

The Brazilian international, will follow the club's full training programme to maintain his fitness in line with the rest of the squad once things get underway after the lockdown.

CloudNine Sports had eaelier reported that the 27-year-old,  picked up the frustrating injury in training before the Liverpool’s 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on March 3, with reserve goalkeeper Adrian taking his place.

Adrian was also in goal for the reds, in their win against Bournemouth, and the Chanpions League round of 16 second-leg 3-2 defeat to Diego Simone's Atletico Madrid, as Liverpool crashed out of the competition in front of their home fans at Anfield.

Alisson was nearing a return to full fitness when the coronavirus lockdown came into effect and has been working on a set programme sent from the club’s fitness staff.

Liverpool’s goalkeeper coach John Achterberg told the club website:
“[Alisson] sent videos, doing some jumping and exercises. Obviously, we were working with him until the lockdown and he was basically fit.

“Now it’s for him to maintain it in the house, like the other goalkeepers. They all get their programmes from the fitness department so they will do the job and the work to try to stay as fit as they can, like all the other players as well.”

This is the second injury  the current Fifa best goalkeeper and the Copa America Golden gloves winner, will be suferring this season. He had earlier missed the opening two months of the campaign due to a muscle injury.
