He has said: “He is a big leader in the group. Allan is someone who is very robotic in terms of his routine, he comes in and his standards are the same every single day. He has the same routine before training, he has the same routine before games, he never drops his standards or has a day off.”

Gerrard added: “We all know his age, we all know his situation and in the coming weeks I will be sitting down with Allan and having a real good conversation to see what is next for him. He will be a major factor in what happens moving forward. We will respect him. He knows his body, he knows where he’s at, he knows where his hunger levels are.”
