New Liverpool signing Alexis Mac Allister (24) had an opportunity to reclaim the number 8. But the midfielder preferred to avoid the flocking that once belonged to Reds legend Steven Gerrard.
« I knew there were several numbers available, including 10 and 8, said the Argentinian in relays offered by the Daily Mirror. 8 is a very important number at this club thanks to Gerrard, so I ‘ was a little hesitant. I ended up choosing 10, but 8 is a number that I like and has a history at the club. »
It must be said that this number 8 did not bring luck on the flop Naby Keita, free party at Werder Brme this summer.
