Trent Alexander-Arnold, who recently celebrated his 21st birthday, has spoken out on Jurgen Klopp and revealed what influence the German coach had on his career.
The defender was given his first debut for the Reds by Klopp three years ago and hasn’t disappointed since that.
During this season, the 21-year-old has made overall 12 appearances in which he scored only one goal and provided three assists.
And when asked about what Klopp has done for his career, the defender replied: “Everything really.
“Obviously without him who knows what would’ve happened. He’s the one that’s given me the most opportunities, more than I can even ask for.
“He’s obviously put a lot of trust and faith in me personally and I’ve tried to repay him every time he’s done that. Obviously a massive thanks to him and hopefully there will be four more years of success.
“Within his first few weeks, he was down at the Academy watching the young lads. That almost gave us a bit more faith and gave a statement to the club that he is going to use young players and give us them chances.
“He’s shown over the four-year period that he has given them young players the chances and given opportunities – and obviously I’m one of those youngsters that have been given them.”
