Signed in 2015 from International’s U20 squad, Allan is still trying to make a name for himself at Liverpool via a bunch of loans.
Sent to Finland, Belgium, Cyprus and Germany, the Brazilian midfielder is finally finding his feet, this time at Eintracht Frankfurt, where his latest performance has earned him a lot of praise.
SGE4ever have a lengthy article on the 21-year-old’s situation these days, and his 90 minutes against Hannover 96 were somewhat eye opening for many at the club.
Left out of the Europa League squad against Marseille by his manager Adi Hütter, Allan has been determined to prove everyone wrong, including the 48-year-old Austrian.
Hüter said: “Allan has trained well. Forced himself. He ran until his tongue hung out of his mouth at the end of the game. He was travelling a lot. I rate his performance as very good”.
Somewhat forced to play the Liverpool loanee due to an injury to Marco Fabián, Hütter might have a decision to make when the Mexican does return.
Described as a “bonus deal” when he arrived, Allan wants to show everyone that isn’t the case, and he’s there to play rather than just be a backup option.
Prior to joining the German side, the Liverpool man renewed his contract at Anfield, even if the length of the deal wasn’t disclosed, suggesting it was just a way of ensuring he didn’t end up a free agent in January.
