Sky commentator Daniel Mann accidentally confused Alexis Mac Allister for his dad and former footballer Carlos.

One said: “‘Carlos Mac Allister’, this commentator just called Alexis by his dad’s name.”

Another added: “Did the @SkySports commentator just say Carlos Mac Allister or am I hearing things?”

One joked: “Who’s Carlos Mac Allister?”

Another asked: “Did the commentator call him Carlos Mac Allister?”

Mac Allister’s dad Carlos played alongside Diego Maradona, although missed out on the 1994 World Cup squad.

At club level, he played for Boca Juniors and Racing Club before taking on a role in politics following retirement.

Mac Allister’s older brothers Francis, 27, and Kevin, 25, also turn out in the Argentine top flight for Rosario Central and Argentinos Juniors respectively.


While uncle Patricio too enjoyed a successful career most notably with Estudiantes.

World Cup winner Mac Allister joined Liverpool from Brighton in the summer for £55million.

And he will celebrate his first cup final with the club having seen off Fulham 3-2 over two legs to book their place against Chelsea.

Goals from Curtis Jones and Cody Gakpo cancelled out Willian’s opener in the first leg at Anfield.

In the return, it ended all square as Luis Diaz struck first before Issa Diop equalised but Liverpool held out.
