Funnily enough his brother actually is called Kevin
Seems to me a good fit for us. Not sure I agree with people saying he's not similar to Gini, to me he looks like a comparable player - industrious, good in tight spaces, versatile. He's not quick but he works hard and presses well.
This is from The Athletics piece this morning:
"Comparing — with Opta’s data — the Argentine to Wijnaldum’s 2019-20 season, the two are similar in their volume of carries per 90 (12.2 to 12) and dribbles attempted (2.1 to 2.3), with Mac Allister having a better success rate (65.7 per cent to 53.2 per cent). He also competed in more duels per 90 (10.7 to 9.1) with greater success (57.3 per cent to 47.2 per cent)"
I think he also is a great fit in the 3-box-3 formation as one of the higher 10's. According to his dad that's his favourite position :
" Mac Allister’s father Carlos had already told De Zerbi that his son preferred operating in the role he plays for Argentina: further up the pitch on the left as a No 10. It’s a role that Liverpool would want him to play in their box formation."
Good start to the summer business, now if we can get another midfielder to compete with or replace Fab that would be ideal.
