Mac Allister sends emotional message to fans

With speculation over his future now reaching fever pitch, a message Mac Allister posted on his social media this week has had Liverpool fans hoping that he could be preparing to say goodbye to Brighton, sooner rather than later.

Taking to Instagram, the 24-year-old posted an emotional message to Brighton’s supporters, alongside a video montage of moments from the season just gone.

It read: “Review of this historic season! It was an honor to represent Brighton & Hove Albion FC in a World Cup but to become the first ever World Cup winner for this club it will be unforgettable (hopefully you will have more), as it will be your welcome after it.

“Three years and a half ago, we were fighting for relegation and today, after so much sacrifice, suffering and work, this group will be in the history of this club for becoming the first time this club will play Europe League. We achieved it all together and that’s why we have to feel very proud. VAMOOOOOS.”

Whether the message will turn out to be the start of a farewell from the seemingly outbound ace, only time will tell. At the moment, all roads seem to be leading to Liverpool.
