Jurgen Klopp on Alexis Mac Allister
In his post-match interview with Sky Sports, Klopp promptly commended Alexis Mac Allister, describing him as outstanding. Klopp suggested that on the ball, Mac Allister might surpass any number six one can imagine.
“He’s incredibly smart. As long as you can create a compact formation, Macca is an outstanding six. On the ball better than all sixes you can imagine. Against the ball, he’s really strong,” Klopp said.
“If the pitch is too big half-spaces too open, I don’t know a lot of sixes who are then great, there might be a few who [come out well] on the defensive side of it, but the game he played today was outstanding.”
Absolutely, Alexis Mac Allister showcased his brilliance for Liverpool, reaffirming the Reds’ wise decision to acquire him in the summer.
The Argentine’s sensational skills enable him to dominate games independently in the midfield, a feat he demonstrated against Bournemouth. Here’s hoping he consistently replicates such performances in the future.
