    Alexander Arnold wants to use his position to help

    Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold insists he wants to use his position in the public eye to help promote the recent racial equality awareness campaign.

    Trent Alexander-Arnold has become a notable public figure over the past couple of years as he has risen through the ranks of Liverpool Football Club.

    The young defender has been a key player in Jurgen Klopp’s revolution on Merseyside. Alexander-Arnold made significant contributions to last year’s Champions League and the recent World Club Cup success.

    He has also featured heavily in this year’s assault on the Premier League title.

    The England international now wants to use his fame to promote more than just football.

    Speaking to BT Sport, he sees his position in society as an opportunity to promote the recent racial awareness campaign that has gripped the world.

    Alexander-Arnold said:

    “Racism as a whole is not only the person that it is directed to.”

    “Just because I haven’t been directly racially abused doesn’t mean I haven’t felt racially abused, I feel the pain they feel.”

    “It’s a community feeling, if you say it to one person, you say it to everyone.”

    “Maybe I put pressure on myself because I know that’s the right thing to do. It’s what I believe in.”

    “I want to make sure I’m educating people and be a role model.”

    “I’ve got a big platform, I know a lot of kids look up to me.”

    “It’s not just about being a role model on the pitch. I want to be someone who feels as though I’ve made a change in the way that people think.”

    “At the end of my career, I want to look back that I influenced a generation, someone who made a change in the way people think.”

    “If I get through my career and I haven’t done that then I’d see that as a failure on my part.”
