Alisson Becker is among top footballers to raise the alarm about the amount of matches at the top of men’s professional football.

The Liverpool and Brazil goalkeeper says national team players in particular are not getting enough rest and recuperation.

“We don’t have enough vacation," said Becker, who played 72 games last season, and travelled 80,000 kilometers.

“It has to be improved a lot. We need a change of mentality – not just by one organization or one committee but by everyone.”
