The father of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has drowned in a lake near his holiday home in southern Brazil.
Jose Becker, 57, had been swimming at a dam on his property when the accident happened on Wednesday.
Police spokesman Doroteo Machado Filho said foul play was not suspected.
Alisson joined Liverpool in 2018 from Roma and was voted FIFA men’s goalkeeper of the year in 2019. His younger brother Muriel is a goalkeeper for Brazilian side Fluminense.
Internacional, who both brothers 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.
