What has caught McAllister’s eye about Alexis Mac Allister?

Alexis Mac Allister’s ability on and off the ball has quickly caught the eye of namesake Gary McAllister.

The current and former Liverpool midfielders are both with the club on the current tour of Singapore, where Mac Allister got another 45 minutes for his new team in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Leicester City and McAllister is appearing as a legend on behalf of LFC.

Signed from Brighton & Hove Albion in June, Argentina star Mac Allister has attracted plaudits for his pre-season displays so far – and McAllister is among the impressed observers.

“There’s been some interesting new signings,” said McAllister, a League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Cup winner with the Reds. “First and foremost, they bring quality.

“You’ve also got the added bonus of Mac Allister being a World Cup winner, it brings the confidence that comes with that. Both are very, very talented young players.”

McAllister continued: “He is somebody who can play in two or three positions. But the big thing for me with Mac Allister when you watch him, he’s a very good player when his team is in possession of the football, but more importantly, when you look at the other side of the game when you don’t have the ball. I think that’s where Mac Allister has caught my eye as well.

“He’s not frightened of hard work; he works really hard for the team out of possession. You see a player that ticks a lot of boxes, and then the impressive thing is out of possession. That’s a big thing.”
