Pep Guardiola has taken to social media to send ‘heartfelt sympathies’ from himself and Manchester City’s players and staff following the tragic death of Liverpool star Alisson Becker’s father in Brazil.

It was reported earlier this Jose Agostinho Becker drowned this morning after swimming into a dam on his property near the town of Rincao do Inferno.

Guardiola is saddened to learn of the ‘tragic and sudden’ death of Jose, adding that the thoughts of himself and City are with Alisson at this ‘very difficult’ time.

Jose and Alisson’s mother also have another son, Muriel, who plays for Fluminense in their homeland.

We can’t even imagine what things must be like for Alisson at this time, we can only hope that the very religious Liverpool player can find the opportunity to be with his family at this time, if it is possible amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
