Alexander represented England at various youth levels and made his senior debut in 2018

The youngster has already made 138 appearances in all competitions, managing eight goals and 38 assists, since graduating from the Reds youth academy.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was named PFA Young Player of the Year on Tuesday.

The first Liverpool to win then coveted individual award since Steven Gerrard in 2001

” Towards the second half of last season, or even the final quarter after everything that happened,

“I found it a little tougher to find the space and have that freedom,” said Alexander- Arnold

He has truly excelled on the biggest stage and has already proven himself as an elite performer through his dangerous runs, intelligence, set-piece abilities, and those lethal crosses.

The England international, who was also nominated for the 2019 Ballon d’Or, has even bagged 31 assists in the last two seasons alone

It’s an incredible achievement for him. Especially as it’s a rare feat for any defender

Leadership comes in different shapes and sizes and forms, whether that be through actions or words.

He added ” People hit their prime at 30 years old and some at 20 years old. ”

“No career is the same so you can’t judge yourself and compare yourself to other players.”

He is one of the finest talents in the world and a key player for Klopp’s European champions.
