Jurgen Klopp reveals funny nickname for Alexis Mac Allister at Liverpool!

Jurgen Klopp has started his midfield revolution this summer with the 2 signings already under the belt. Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister was his first signing this summer and was done pretty early on in June. 

Klopp is known to form deep connections with the players and often give them nicknames. He revealed in an interview that he has dubbed the Argentine midfielder ‘Gary’, in reference to the former red. McAllister played for Liverpool for two years from 2000-2002, winning three trophies in his first season.

“I was immediately thinking about nicknames and I thought it would be great nickname for Alexis… Gary [McAllister]!” Klopp told the club website. “He plays pretty good football, obviously, the same as [Dominik Szoboslai].”

 Klopp also noted that his two new midfield signings have impressed in training so far: “I was pretty clear in the moment we signed them, the public reception was pretty good, internally it was outstanding, the boys know about football so they were immediately like, ‘Oh my God…’ so that’s really good. Now they are here and didn’t take long, let me say, to impress on the pitch as well, so that’s good.”

Liverpool need to strengthen their midfield even further with Fabinho and Jordan Henderson on the brink of leaving the club.
