Klopp discusses Trent Alexander-Arnold’s experiment
Klopp is still baffled as to why England or anyone else would want to cripple 22-year-old Alexander-Arnold’s playing position, and Liverpool’s boss said why would they want to make the world’s best right-back as a midfielder.
What did Klopp say about Trent Alexander-Arnold?
Talk of an Anfield graduate advancing further on the field is nothing new, with his technical qualities and flanking flanks that heralds a more creative role. Southgate decided to take on this experiment during the last international break, with its Three Lions side in the World Cup qualifying event, and Trent Alexander-Arnold was handed the midfield in a 4-0 win over Andorra.
The 22-year-old admitted that he had a hard time finding a position switch as he failed to spark as planned, and Jurgen Klopp wonders why questions continue to be asked to the man who epitomizes modern day full throwback. Liverpool’s boss told reporters that if you watch their games, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s position has already changed when it was possible.
You don’t need to make Trent’s a midfielder now. It’s a shame that they are talking about this in 2021, good players are playing everywhere – Trent Alexander-Arnold is playing right, everywhere. Trent can play in midfield. More than six than eight. But why would they make the world’s best right-back as a midfielder? it is difficult for him to understand how anyone can think so. Some people think that Trent Alexander-Arnold may be more influential in midfield. How can you be more influential than Alexander-Arnold’s? they use it as best they can.
Players love to play
Liverpool are set to be without their Brazilian contingent on a trip to Leeds on Sunday, as Firmino nurses a knock and Fabinho and Alisson are denied the opportunity to play after the Reds blocked their connection with the Brazilian squad. On this issue, Jurgen said that players love to play, that’s what they do. It’s really not okay, they didn’t decide that the players couldn’t go. they are still in a pandemic. they have to be on top of it until the end. they are tested three times a week, which means that if there are positive results they are quarantined.
While the South American trio will be unavailable on Elland Road, Keita has safely returned to Merseyside after being involved in a coup d’état in Guinea, and Van Dijk is set to go after picking up a little knock with the Netherlands.
