Brazilian stars of Liverpool and Manchester City are getting together – at church.
Kop goalkeeper Alisson, along with striker Roberto Firmino, were invited along to services by City skipper Fernandinho.
They are regularly joined by his Etihad pals Gabriel Jesus and keeper Ederson.
A source close to the Brazilian contingent said: “There is a thriving Brazilian community based around the church.
"Fernandinho had been bringing his family to the church for a while.
“He mentioned to some of the Liverpool lads about the Audacious Church and the amazing live worship music they put on.

“There can be £500million worth of Premier League footballers sat in the auditorium, but they are just like everybody else – there to rejoice in their love of faith and God.”
Many Brazilian footballers are devout Christians and the church in Salford, is known for putting on amazing shows.
Fernandinho has also used his links within the local Salford community to help his Brazilian football pals get food supplies from back home.
Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool transfers discussed daily but signings not his call
The source added: “Liverpool stars make the trip down the M62 to stock up on their favourite rice and beans from a shop the City players are using.”
In comes as Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that he is not in control of transfers at Anfield.
Supporters have been crying out for short-term defensive reinforcement with both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez on the sidelines, despite Joel Matip returning against Burnley.
Jamie Carragher said it would be ‘inconceivable’ for the club not to be looking at potential additions in that area, stating that it could cost his former side the title.
Following their shock home defeat to Sean Dyche’s side on Thursday, Klopp has once again insisted that he will not have the final say on any incoming deals this month.
Immediately after their loss, he said: “These decisions are not my decisions. If somebody thinks we should do something [they will decide].
“I cannot decide if we do something in the transfer window or not, that must be clear. But that’s not something I’m thinking about.
“It’s just we can, with this group, play much better football – that’s my concern, that’s what I’m thinking about.”
