Jose Becker, the father of Liverpool and Brazil goalkeeper Alisson, has drowned while fishing, the player's representative confirmed to CNN Brasil.

Liverpool issued condolences to the 28-year-old goaltender on Twitter.

"The thoughts of everybody at the club are with Alisson Becker and the Becker family at this incredibly sad and difficult time," the club tweeted.

The 57-year-old Becker had been in southern Brazil, near the border with Uruguay.

"He was fishing and drowned," Ze Maria Neiss, Alisson's representative, told CNN. "The family is in shock."

Local police believe no foul play was involved.

Alisson is in his third season with Liverpool following a £66.8 million move from Roma.
