Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has sent a message to Trent Alexander-Arnold after he has been omitted from England squad for the World Cup qualifiers.
Gareth Southgate announced the squad last Thursday and the Reds star wasn’t included in the 26-man list for the upcoming games against San Marino, Albania and Poland.
“One thing’s for sure, I’ll always be there for Trent,’ said Liverpool’s iconic former midfielder Gerrard.
“It goes without saying, any second of the day. I wouldn’t make the first move.
“He’s a man himself. He knows where he’s at. Gareth Southgate makes the decisions there.
“I don’t necessarily agree with that decision. But I’m not the England manager. I think Trent is the best English right back in the country.
“One thing I’ve learned from being a player is you can’t always be 10 out of 10.
“When you do come off, you need that support, love and attention from your manager more than anyone else.
‘So, I was surprised by the decision but that’s my opinion and my opinion is not important in this.
“Trent is a world-class right back, he’s the best right back the country has got.
“We’ve got other fantastic right backs by the way. But in terms of the loaded side of the question, I’m there for Trent and any of the other Liverpool players at any moment of the day.”
