TAA wary of letting key ‘disappointment’ shroud Liverpool career

    Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold says he would be “disappointed” if he did not become the club captain at some point in his career.

    West Derby-born Alexander-Arnold has risen through the Reds‘ academy ranks to become a local hero for the club.

    After making his debut in October 2016, he is now an unmissable part of Jurgen Klopp‘s plans. Indeed, his penchant for assists – 34 so far – make him the team’s main source of creativity.

    The 21-year-old recently added the Premier League to what is, considering his age, an eye-catching trophy cabinet. However, he says becoming Liverpool captain is his one true goal.

    “Becoming Liverpool captain eventually motives me every day,” the Englishman told The Telegraph.

    “It is something I want to achieve. Obviously that will not be my decision, but if I did not manage that before the end of my career I would be disappointed. I have always thought about that.

    “Whether it happens or not, I feel it is my job at Liverpool to lead by example. I always try to do that now – to be an example for the younger lads coming through.”

    Alexander-Arnold added that he admires the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for their hunger for silverware.


    “I feel as though I am part of a team where everyone is influential and helping each other,” he said. “That is what captains do. They lead and drag the side through tough times, and motivate the players alongside them.

    “If you look at [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi, it is the same. You never see them relaxing. Ronaldo has won five Champions Leagues.

    “If you asked him if he was happy with that, he would say, ‘a little bit, but I want another one’. As an athlete, it would be weird not to have that competitive nature. You need goals and ambitions.”


    Winger Mohamed Salah is another star who has become unmissable under Klopp.

    The Egyptian has scored 92 goals in 145 games since his move from Roma in 2017.

    However, he has revealed initial doubt as to how he would fit in, given Sadio Mane’s presence on the wing.
