Alexis Mac Allister has jokingly detailed how his new Liverpool teammates are teasing him due to his relationship with Jurgen Klopp.
The German manager was key behind Liverpool’s impressive swoop for Mac Allister early on in the summer transfer window, with the Reds signing the midfielder for £35m.
The former Brighton & Hove Albion star is on course to become a key part of Liverpool’s system in the years to come, and Mac Allister has already jokingly become a target for his new teammates.
The midfielder said: “The relationship is obviously 10 points, I just arrived and when you just arrive everything is easier and everything goes perfectly.

“But many of my teammates tease me because they say that he is my dad now. The relationship with him is perfect, he is a very charismatic person, who always tries to be close to the players.”
Mac Allister can become an icon at Liverpool
Mac Allister has clearly made an impact both on and off the pitch for Liverpool this season, and the midfielder could earn icon status at Anfield if he can start adding to his stats.
The 24-year-old is a player who shone in the Premier League last season, and at Liverpool, Mac Allister can take his game to new levels once he is fully settled.
And his comments today shed light on someone who seems at home on Merseyside, with Liverpool players welcoming Mac Allister and not being afraid to make fun of him when around Klopp.
