Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker has attributed his quick recovery from injury to the power of prayer.
It was gathered that Becker was staring at a six weeks out of action after he damaged shoulder ligaments while in training.
However, the Brazilian shocked many after he made an earlier than expected return to action to hand Jürgen Klopp a huge boost.
The keeper was between the sticks on Saturday, October 24, as Liverpool stunned struggling Sheffield United 2-1 at Anfield.
He is sure to keep his place in goal when the Reds take on Danish giants FC Midtjylland in their Champions League group fixture on Tuesday, October 27.
And when asked how he made a fast recovery way ahead of his schedule, Becker revealed the power of prayer was behind the early return.
The 28-year-old divulged he defied doctors suggestions to half his injury recovery.
“As soon as the doctor said it was four to six weeks, I said no doc we go two to three maximum, and he agrees with me and we go for it," Mirror UK quoted Becker saying.
“How did I do it? I pray a lot. Seriously, I pray a lot. I believe my faith and working hard helped me in this fast recovery,” he added.
Becker's return will be vital for Klopp in the coming months in marshalling the backline in the absence of Virgil van Dijk who faces a lengthy injury layoff.
However, despite his availability, Legit.ng also reported that Klopp is sure to miss the services not the trio of Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara and Joel Matip who are understood not to be ready for the fixture.
The Merseyside outfit has been drawn with Midtjylland in Group D of the Champions League alongside Ajax and Serie A giants Atalanta.
Atalanta and Liverpool are joint-top in the pool after they won the first round of the group matches.
