Allsopp joined United on January 18 from Qatari side Al-Rayyan, where he scored six goals in 12 matches. Before moving to the Middle East, Allsopp capped a brilliant club career in Australia, appearing four times and scoring one goal for the Melbourne Victory in the Hyundai A-League during the 2009-2010 season.
