Alexis Mac Allister is making quite a good early impression in Liverpool training, judging by the footage being shared on the club’s official social media channels.
On Monday, the Reds’ Twitter channel featured a short clip which showed Jurgen Klopp beside himself with glee at the 24-year-old’s efforts on and off the ball during their pre-season camp in Germany.
Another video has now emerged on YouTube showing the Argentine displaying a work rate which’ll endear him not only to his manager but also his teammates and his new club’s supporters.
As Trent Alexander-Arnold surged forward with possession, Mac Allister read the run perfectly and moved at an angle which enabled him to cover the ground, stick out a leg and claim the ball off the England international.
Klopp can then be heard screaming “Yes Alexis!”, with the ex-Brighton midfielder duly advancing the play for his own team during the training exercise.
That relentless work ethic and the vision to read the game impeccably with a masterfully-timed tackle is something we can’t wait to see from the World Cup winner throughout the upcoming season!
