Trent Alexander-Arnold

20-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold is still one of Liverpool’s youngest players, but he believes he can be a good role model.

Trent Alexander-Arnold might only be a 20-year-old Liverpool footballer.

But the youngster believes he can become a good role model for the next generations of players.

“I think I understand that I have a responsibility for the young players,” he was quoted by Goal.

“I try to make sure I am there for them and they know they can come and speak to me.”

“Hopefully they know I have been in their situation and I know what they’re going through – coming in and out of teams, being rotated, not getting the minutes you want, finding it too hard or intense, or struggling with fitness,” he added.

“I have been through it all. I hope they understand that I have, that I am always here for them, and that I am always available for them to come and talk.”

“Effectively our season starts on Sunday and we’ve got a massive game against one of the best teams in the world,” Alexander-Arnold commented.

“Coming in off pre-season, it’s going to be tough and intense, but we know we can match them, we’ve shown that over the years.”

“It will be tough, but I am sure we will put in a good effort,” the youngster concluded.
