Alisson should have few problems adapting to Liverpool's style - Roma had more possession than any team in Serie A, so he is used to standing idle while his team dominate.
Ward has only made three first-team appearances for Liverpool since signing for them in January 2012, spending the 2016/17 season on loan with Huddersfield and helping them secure promotion to the Premier League.
"As the negotiations were at an advanced stage, I replied to him straightaway saying, 'Calm down, I'm on my way!'".
Klopp said: "There was a world-class goalkeeper in the market, and the club gave us the opportunity to sign him, it is as simple as that". "His English is surprisingly good and he is a real personality. They were quite excited, so we did it", said Klopp.
"We got to the Champions League semifinals, so I think we deserve a bit of faith".
Jurgen Klopp's board shelled out £66.8million for Alisson this summer
Jose Mourinho has received rare backing from a fellow Premier League manager following his recent complaints over the limited amount of time to work with his squad ahead of the 2018-19 season.
Of course, for a club whose entire fan base remains traumatised by the performance of their goalkeeper in June's Champions League final, none of that really matters.
But others - namely Manchester City and Manchester United supporters - have made it their mission to tell Reds fans that regardless of spending, they won't be winning any silverware next season.
The deal, believed to be worth £68M, smashes the world record for a goalkeeper in football.
"First of all I want to say that nothing is finalised yet".
However, it was only last season that the 25-year-old became a regular at the Stadio Olimpico, despite having already established himself as the undisputed number one in Tite's Brazil side ahead of the aforementioned Ederson.
