Jurgen Klopp buzzing as Liverpool boss speaks about ‘super’ Alexis Mac Allister

Klopp outlines Liverpool's plans for summer transfer window

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is buzzing over the transfer of World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister. The player put pen-to-paper on a long-term deal at Anfield on Thursday morning following a four-and-a-half year spell at Brighton.

Mac Allister enjoyed an incredible season throughout the 2022/23 campaign and helped Brighton finish sixth in the Premier League table just months after starring for Argentina on their way to World Cup success in Qatar.

The 24-year-old, who started six of his country’s seven World Cup matches, bagged 10 Premier League goals as the Seagulls secured their best ever top-flight finish. And following the ace’s move to the north west, Klopp told the Liverpool website: “We are adding a very talented, very smart, very technically skilled boy to our squad and this is super news, really it is.

“I do not think the football world needs me to say too much about Alexis’ qualities because they are already pretty well known, but it is clear that he is someone who can play in a number of positions in the midfield and is an all-rounder, I would say. He is calm and composed and someone with proper game intelligence.

“Of course, he is a player we have known about for a long time and I have watched him grow from a young boy coming into the Premier League to a man who helped his country win the World Cup. That is quite a journey.

“My admiration and respect for what Brighton are doing is well known and Alexis has been a part of the journey that they have been on in becoming one of the toughest and best sides in the Premier League.

The 23/24 home shirt for Liverpool pays homage to the past of the club, as well as collaborator Nike, with a strong 1970s influence. The iconic red, capped with bold white cuffs and collar really does invoke that classic Liverpool FC style while adding a cool retro touch

“I’m really happy his next steps will now be with us and we get to work with a player who is already excellent and experienced, but also has so much more to come given he is just 24 years old.

“He is just as excited to be joining and working with us and that already makes it a good partnership, but there is no pressure on him. He is still so young, so it is obvious he will only improve and our job is to help him take the next steps. I’m grateful to everyone at the club who helped make this transfer happen and I am sure I speak for everyone here when I say I cannot wait to start working with Alexis.”
