The goalkeeper was given the armband for Liverpool's Champions League triumph over FC Porto at Anfield on Wednesday night, as Thiago Alcantara and Mohamed Salah scored to make it five victories in a row in Group B.

Alisson was overjoyed at the prospect of captaining the team, emphasizing Jürgen Klopp's squad's breadth of leadership abilities.

“The players did a vote for this – for extra captains. It's a pleasure, an honour for me, being captain of this team. Many big players did that before," the Brazil international told Liverpoolfc.com post-match.

“We have an amazing captain, but we have a lot of leaders on the team who are not wearing the band on the arm. But many leaders that play important roles; myself, Sadio, Mo, all the players.

“It's really important to have all these players on the team who can make a leadership and push the players forward when it's needed."
