Alexis and Kevin Mac Allister They had a fun talk in English, prior to the meeting between the Liverpool of England and Royale Union Saint-Gilloise of Belgium in Anfield. The brothers lived very peacefully and seemed relaxed in the run-up to the match corresponding to the second date of the Group E of the Europa League.
The telephone exchange was organized by the network team and replicated on their social networks. “I want you to suffer,” recognized one. “You can feel a little kick,” answered the other. The truth is that the few minutes that the dialogue lasted there were chicanery, threats and good vibes between the footballer brothers.
“What’s up dude? Are you at home? “They are on vacation there, they don’t train, crazy,” Alexis started the talk through a video call. “We’re relaxed, dad, we have an easy game, ha,” Kevin joked. “Are you able to speak English, Kevito?”, the world champion pressed with English. “Of course, my friend,” the full-back answered with confidence, who asked: “Shall I answer you in English or Spanish?” The midfielder did not hesitate: “And, of course, try in English.”
As soon as it was confirmed that Royale Union Saint-Gilloise from Belgium would be part of the Liverpool group, the video of the squad’s reaction went viral. “I saw your reaction on the plane. As was?”, Alexis expressed. “When the driver announced, he said: they will play LASK, Toulouse and then he paused a little to say Liverpool. For me to play at Anfield and be able to hear ‘You’ll never walk alone’ will be incredible,” Kevin stated.
Immediately afterwards, the world champion whistled him: “I hope you don’t enjoy it. I want you to suffer. I can tell you because I was at Anfield as a Liverpool player but also as a visitor and you can feel that, the stadium and the people.” Of course, the defender who also emerged from the Argentinos Juniors quarry, retorted: “And maybe you can feel my kick.”
“I know you’re wishing us bad luck, because I know what that’s like in Argentina… It was a pleasure talking to you again. See you on Thursday and good luck… Because you’re going to need it!” Alexis closed. “Same from me,” Kevin concluded.
Liverpool debuted with a 3-1 victory in the Europa League against LASK of Austria and will now try to continue with an ideal score in front of its home crowd when it faces Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, which tied 1-1 with Toulouse on the first date. The Reds have just lost their undefeated record in the Premier League, after losing 2-1 as a visitor to Tottenham and are fourth in the tournament. For its part, Royale Union Saint-Gilloise beat Charleroi in the Belgian Pro League, at the Stade Joseph Marien in Brussels. Those led by Alexander Blessin are leaders of the Belgian tournament after nine games.
