Now, Mac Allister has admitted that he would like to return to the club he supported growing up before ending his playing career.

What has Alexis Mac Allister said?

The Liverpool midfielder told TyC Sports (via AnfieldWatch): “I don’t like to promise that I will return because the reality is that there is still a long way to go, but anything can happen.

“Obviously, the desire is there, especially because my time in Boca was very short and I would have liked to be there more, but time will tell if I have that possibility and they give it to me.”
