Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Alexis Mac Allister after the midfielder’s performance in Liverpool’s 4-0 pre-season win against Leicester City.

Speaking to the Athletic, the Anfield manager was very impressed with what he saw from Liverpool’s new £35m signing, with Mac Allister adapting well to life under Klopp since moving from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Klopp said when asked about Mac Allister’s performance for Liverpool against Leicester: “When we found Macca between the lines, he was really good. That helped us speed the game up.”

The plan for the upcoming season seems to be partnering Mac Allister with Dominik Szoboszlai, with the potential arrival of Romeo Lavia set to complete Klopp’s new-look midfield for the new campaign.

And Mac Allister finding his feet already in Liverpool’s system is a massive boost, especially with the Reds’ Premier League opener against rivals Chelsea now just two weeks away.

Indeed, the Argentine international has already looked like a shrewd signing for Liverpool at just £35m, and Klopp’s comments on the 24-year-old could go a long way ahead of the new league season next month.

Mac Allister has already made quite the impact at Liverpool since signing for the club last month, and under Klopp, the midfielder could take his game to a whole new level.

As we know, the midfielder was one of the best in the Premier League last season at Brighton, and there’s every chance that Mac Allister can become better this year under Klopp’s management and training.

Moreover, playing alongside world-class players like Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold will only push Mac Allister further, with the midfielder already clicking with his new Liverpool teammates.
