​Mac Allister ready to handle Brighton expectations

Brighton and Hove Albion star Alexis Mac Allister is ready to step up to the plate next season.

The Argentine youth star enjoyed his time at Boca Juniors during the first half of the season.

But now he is back in England and hoping to help the team for the rest of the season.

And he says that he is ready.

He told The Argus: "I try not to think much about it. I was conscious of what is at stake when you play for Boca.

"But I tried not to pressure myself and to just enjoy playing football. I think when you enjoy your football you do better.

"I don't know if there is a lot of expectation here but, if there is, I am happy about it.

"I'm happy people expect a lot of me. I have a lot of expectation of the team and of doing well myself.

"Let's hope that is the case, for the good of Brighton."
