Earlier in his interview to the Mirror Allison shared his impressions on Liverpool, Anfield and the Reds community: "Already there is a bond with the supporters. They are so passionate. It’s important for me to have that support and encouragement. We have big hopes and expectations and it’s important to count on them - I’m really happy to be here, and happy to be with them."
He could have signed with Real Madrid this summer but it were Liverpool that made him feel "happy and wanted". "They [Real Madrid] are a huge club, they have had many great players, but when I came here, where I spoke to the people here, they made me feel wanted. All the staff, all the people, not to mention the players. It is an amazing group, some of them I have worked with before, like Salah at Roma," the new goalkeeper says.
