Comedian Alison Becker trolls Liverpool by announcing she has signed

SOME cruel pundits have claimed Liverpool already have a comedian in goal.

And American actress Alison Becker has come up with what must be a No 1 Yank prank.

The Reds are thought to be keen on her Brazil namesake Alisson Becker – after Loris Karius gifted Real Madrid two goals in Liverpool's 3-1 Champions League final defeat in May.

But comedy star Alison has got in their first – tweeting to say she has signed for Jurgen Klopp's squad.

She said: "Excited to announce that I will be joining Liverpool as a goalkeeper!"

The 41-year-old's trolling was taken in good spirit by Reds' fans.

Some even admitted she had fooled them into thinking the World Cup keeper had signed – partly because her Twitter account is verified.

One supporter tweeted: "I fell for it for a second. Would have worked if you had changed the pic."

And others took the opportunity to suggest 25-year-old real target Alisson would be over-priced at £60m-plus.

Chelsea are reportedly rivalling Liverpool for Becker, who has 31 caps.

The former Internacional star has been one of Serie A's stand-out stoppers since joining Roma two years ago.

Sky Sports say the Reds have made the running in bidding for Becker but a fee has yet to be agreed.
