“It’s an honour for me to be in this club” – Alexis Mac Allister reflects on his official debut for Liverpool

"It's an honour for me to be in this club" - Alexis Mac Allister reflects on his official debut for LiverpoolMatch

Liverpool, aiming for a generational change in their midfielders, which is said to be the cause of last season’s poor form, brought in Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, who led Brighton to sixth place in the Premier League, as the transfer market opened.

A versatile midfielder who can play at the back, in the middle, or up front in midfield, he is experienced in England and on the World Cup stage. 

He has always been expected to make an immediate impact, and in the domestic league opener against Chelsea, he put in a consistent performance despite being away from home.

When asked once again about joining Liverpool, the former Brighton midfielder responded that it was an honor. He also said that his debut with his new team was not the best, but that he is feeling good about the experience.

“Special, special.”

“It’s an honour for me to be in this club. I can see already how big this club is. So, very happy to be here. I’m really looking forward to this season.”

“First of all, very happy for my debut with this club. It feels amazing.

“On the other hand, tough game, intense game against a very good team with good players. We know that they improved a lot during pre-season.

“So, it’s not a result we wanted but it’s still a point and we move on.”


The next game is against Bournemouth at Anfield. Can the Argentine midfielder, who will be making his home debut, show the same high level of performance in front of a packed house of supporters?
