World Cup-winning midfielder with Argentina and new Liverpool signing, Alexis Mac Allister has voiced his opinion of the best midfielder in legends of the league. When asked by an interviewer from the club, Mac Allister answered in a second. He supported his club legend Steven Gerrard as the best midfielder. He ranked him above Frank Lampard and Paul Scholes.

This response made his stance clear as a true Red. The player idolizes the former Liverpool skipper and bases his own gameplay on him. He went even further to rank Liverpool’s Anfield as the best stadium. Leaving Lampard’s former Etihad Stadium and Scholes’ Old Trafford out of the top three.

With his loyal support towards the club and its essence, Mac Allister is solidifying his name in the hearts of Liverpool locals as a true scouser. While his response could also be considered safe, even Paul Scholes confessed on a recent YouTube video that Gerrard was better than him.

Pep Guardiola was another prominent figure asked to weigh in on the debate who shared a surprising response. He ranked Scholes above Gerrard, saying that he is his‘favorite’. Mac Allister’s opinion adds freshness to the debate.

Meanwhile, Kevin De Bruyne is another player who could soon be involved among the three when he hangs up his boots. Mac Allister had ranked De Bruyne after Andres Iniesta and above Luka Modric.
