Some Liverpool fans have reacted hilariously to an image of Alisson Becker, as the goalkeeper nears his return to action.
It’s happened. Alisson has shaved his beard.
There’s something about having a big handsome brute between the sticks, and Liverpool’s number one proved last season he is equal parts world-class and beautiful.
Of course, with the age of social media, fans can be more obsessed with their favourite stars than ever before, and some Reds fans seem to have formed quite the attachment to the goalkeeper’s beard.
The £66.8m star posed on his wife’s Instagram this week in the build-up to his return, which is expected after the international break, but several fans were left disappointed by the absence of facial hair.
We’re not sure whether the former Roma man owes any of his abilities to his beard, but you would certainly think so given how some fans on Twitter have reacted.
Check out some of the best verdicts down below, with just a hint of sarcasm…
