At just 21 years old, Liverpool Trent defends Alexander-Arnold accomplished almost everything a young academy player dreams of throughout his career.
In 2017, first choice right back Nathaniel Clyne sustained a serious injury that allowed the academy to take a look at senior football – and, well, the rest is history.
Alexander-Arnold has since become an influential figure in Liverpool's winning Champions League and has contributed masterfully to the team that has played unbeaten in the Premier League for an entire calendar year. .
The defender said that Klopp is a & # 39; loving character & # 39; and shows his intense passion in training
The defender has spoken openly about his rise and a wide and diverse subject in an interview with GQ .
He still feels there is work to be done in Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp, who gave him his first-team breakthrough and watched him become one of the most talented youth in world football.
When asked about his manager Klopp, a straight forward Alexander-Arnold replied with one word: & # 39; Incredible & # 39 ;.
A serious pause followed before he added: "Everything about him in every way. His man management, the way he approaches it as a person. Just incredible as a manager.
& # 39; On camera you can see that he is a loving person and you can see that he is someone who cares about the people around him. He cares about his family, his players, his staff. He treats the captain the same as a young player.
& # 39; I feel like you see the real person. People feel that they are very emotional, but he knows how to control it, how it is beneficial around him.
& # 39; He is sometimes [passionate in training] when he has to. That's another thing that's great about him. He knows what to say and how to say it. & # 39;
The right back hasn't always chopped the cool figure we see bombing Liverpool's wing. As a young academy player, he was known for his bad character that he was & # 39; overly competitive & # 39; found.
Alexander-Arnold admitted he was in a bad mood as a young academy player
He also admitted that he & # 39; hates losing more than he likes to win & # 39; but learns from mistakes
& # 39; I wouldn't say it was an outright temperament of a young kid who was mad all the time, ”he said the Liverpool star.
& # 39; It was more overly competitive that I wanted to win so much that if I didn't I would of course be upset. I would be mad. I'd be mad at myself for not winning anything.
& # 39; That comes from a young age when I was in the garden with my brothers, or just doing something with my brothers. We were just competitive all the time in everything we've ever done.
& # 39; It was normal for me to be angry if you didn't win. & # 39;
But while he had a warm head, he showed the defender's competitive nature, but it had his drawbacks.
& # 39; It [his temperament] would make you lose concentration in a game & # 39 ;, he added.
& # 39; You would focus on your mistakes. If you make a mistake, you kick yourself and then you are out of the game for the next five minutes. & # 39;
Many believe that the 21-year-old is reinventing the right-back position with his playing style
Alexander-Arnold believes he has sung his mood to improve himself.
& # 39; I hate losing more than I love to win & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; The feeling of someone getting the upper hand weakens. You feel like you have left the people around you.
& # 39; It is healthy to leave a loss behind, but there is a lesson to be learned in each loss. & # 39;
ALEXANDER-ARNOLD 2019/20 STATS
Supports : 12
Alexander-Arnold made a swift rise from youth player to world beater in Klopp's formidable Liverpool team. Many believe that the 21-year-old reinvents the right-back position with his playing style; his offensive prowess and crusade turn out to be second to none.
Nevertheless, he still believes that he is not a very good footballer and that he still needs to improve a lot.
& # 39; I don't think I'm a very good football player now & # 39 ;, he explained.
& # 39; I love to play football, but I would say that I have not yet fully reached my full potential. So until then there is no point in putting a label on where I am because I am not where I need to be and where I can be. I still have a lot to improve and a lot of hard work.
& # 39; When I was growing up, there were always indications. I was always in the youth teams and played every game so I knew the people who made the decisions liked me as a player.
However, he curiously admitted that he still thinks he is not a very good footballer
& # 39; It was never about making a plan to become a soccer player, more just every day I wanted to win in training. & # 39;
The defender was part of one of the biggest games in the Premier League and received high praise along the way. However, he insisted that he didn't care about the opinions of others and said it's all about the team's performance.
& # 39; It is clear that people have their opinion. I try to play as best I can to help the team win trophies. It's more about the team winning trophies than any opinion.
His trophy cabinet is growing, but he prefers team silver over individual prizes.
& # 39; Each individual award will never come close to a team trophy, because those are the dreams you grow up to win. They are the ones that mean the most and are the hardest to win because you need the people around you to buy the manager's idea, buy the game plans and play the best you can. & # 39;
Unfortunately, Alexander-Arnold admitted that he had his first experience of racist abuse in an England shirt.
In October 2019, England traveled to Bulgaria in a Euro 2020 qualifier and the home fans threw nauseating abuse at the Gareth Southgate team throughout the match. The Bulgarian FA was subsequently fined and instructed to play a game behind closed doors.
Regarding racism, Alexander-Arnold admitted that he has experienced very little.
& # 39; The only time would be the match in Bulgaria & # 39 ;, he explained. & # 39; You understand that these things happen. It is unacceptable, whether on a football field or in everyday life. & # 39;
& # 39; I feel that racism stems from a lack of education. In terms of educating people that every person is the same regardless of skin color or gender. Discrimination is in no way acceptable because everyone is equal and deserves an equal opportunity to do what they want. & # 39;
He is a big fan favorite with the Liverpool allegiance, but admitted he doesn't sing his song
He added: & # 39; Why couldn't someone go on a football field and express themselves? It is more than crazy for me. & # 39;
It's no secret that the right back is a favorite with fans of Liverpool, the only native Scouser on the team. The fans have a song for him, but Trent insisted that he not sing it at home.
& # 39; No, I wouldn't say that, no. I never sang it to myself. Maybe in my head. & # 39;
THE SECRET SCOUT: Manchester City's younger Tommy Doyle is strong with both feet but will not dominate lightly
- Secret Scout takes a look at Manchester City's younger Tommy Doyle this week
- Tommy, 17, is the grandson of ex-City stable black and captain Mike Doyle
- Pep Guardiola loves a midfielder who plays like Fernandinho and Rodri
Our scout is a top football expert who attends games every week looking for the next star.
This week Sportsmail & # 39; s Secret Scout places Manchester City younger Tommy Doyle under the microscope.
WHAT HAS HE GOT?
Club: Manchester City
Position: Central Midfield
Value: £ 750,000
The grandson of ex-City steadfast and captain Mike Doyle , this youth looks like he will follow in his footsteps.
Pep Guardiola loves a midfielder like Fernandinho and Rodri.
But Doyle is 17 and has time by his side. Here he gave an adult performance, dictating the game from deep areas in a game under 23.
It seems that he has a strong character and his teammates respect his skills. He continuously positions himself to receive the ball from his back line and from there it is his job to feed the players for him.
In the game that I saw, he often collected the ball without any pressure from an opponent.
This helped him, but when pressed down he still seemed to make time to see the early pass.
He is a player with the vision to find an unmarked teammate in an instant. Early on I assumed that he was only a right-footed player to blow my judgment to pieces with two cross-field passes to the right-wing player with an accurate movement of his left foot.
He groped deeply and found freedom to orchestrate his team's attack from the base of a midfield triangle.
WHAT DOES IT NEED?
At about 5ft 8in, he doesn't dominate in the air. He may also have to find a meter pace, because he watched a few steps in a few moments when he had to chase an attacker. The best midfield players have that zip to anticipate and intercept or tackle.
However, this player seems to have an old head on his shoulders and as such will certainly make progress.
He looks as if he will only improve with experience. There are some talented young players in the ranks of Manchester City and some expensive imports, but the real test for Doyle will be loaned to a lower divisional side for a while to see if he can handle a more broken game. He currently seems more than comfortable at his level.
Barcelona & Marcus McGuane joins the Dutch division of the second division Telstar for a seasonal loan as a former Arsenal youth in search of football from the first team
The former England under the age of 19 is under contract with the Catalan giants until 2021 after his accession from Premier League outfit Arsenal in January 2018.
After McGuane last season played a leading role for the B-team of Barcelona, he now went looking for regular first-team football by joining the Dutch second division team.
The 56-year-old Jonker was head of the Arsenal academy while McGuane rose through the ranks of the Emirates.
Furthermore, the 20-year-old will also reunite with former Arsenal-younger Charlie Gilmour, who is on loan to Telstar the season after joining Norwich.
& # 39; Personality … intelligence … and aggression! & # 39 ;: Former midfielder of Chelsea Cesc Fabregas greets Billy Gilmour's star against Liverpool … and the Scottish wonderkid grew up analyzing The Spaniard Contest
His performance was reminiscent of how his idol Cesc Fabregas played
But it would have been Fabrega's comments on social media the 18-year-old's most.
Asked on social media how Fabregas thought that Gilmour did, the former center of Chelsea fielder wrote : & # 39; Fantastic. Personality on the ball, intelligence in his decision-making, always making corners to offer himself and that bit of aggression, which is very important, especially in the Premier League. & # 39;
Lampard said after the game that Gilmour will have more chances to play for the first team with his previous experience limited to League Cup games against Grimsby and Manchester United and a FA Cup fourth round draw in Hull.
Fabregas, who pulled the strings in midfield in the same way Gilmour did on Tuesday evening at Stamford Bridge, believes the young Scot & # 39; real potential & # 39; has.
He added To add: & # 39; If you have the quality, but also the desire, the work ethic and the intelligence, then when you can see real potential in a young player. He has it all. & # 39;
Gilmour grew up watching Fabregas and a video on Chelsea & # 39; s YouTube channel from December 2017 shows the young person watching the Spanish midfielder in action.
While watching a clip from Fabregas, Gilmour says: & As a mid-midfielder, I look up to Cesc Fabregas in the first Chelsea team.
& # 39; What I am doing here is analyzing his game and putting things from his game into my game, so that I can improve myself as a general midfielder. & # 39;
When asked about Gilmour's performance, Lampard said: "Well, I mean, what an incredible performance for a young player against it." dear team. When things happen around you quickly and he was a calm head in those first five, 10 minutes.
& # 39; You could immediately see that he had quality on the ball and wants to grab the ball.
& # 39; He is a return to the days of midfielders when I was growing up. And people will say can you put your foot in it? Yes, can you make corners to always get the ball? Yes, can you play the right pass and choose the simple one at the right time? Yes, and he has it all.
& # 39; People may look at him and see that he is quite small in his way, but he is huge in personality. Enormous. So I'm absolutely happy for him. He deserves everything. He deserves the man of the competition, he deserves people who talk about him. I am very happy for him and his family because it is a big day for them. & # 39;
& # 39; He is not ready & # 39 ;: Jose Mourinho, Tottenham's manager, defends the decision not to give Troy Parrott more playing time to Wolves despite NO other attackers being available
- Troy Parrott emerged as a substitute in injury time during Wolves' defeat
- Jose Mourinho struggled without an out-and-out striker in Tottenham
- Mourinho waved calls to give Parrott more minutes for Spurs
With Tottenham losing 3-2 against Wolves on Sunday in the Premier League and because he had no out-and-out striker at his disposal, Mourinho decided only the 18-year-old in injury time despite desperately following the equalizer.
Mourinho chose to use Alli as an improvised striker at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the absence of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
And after the last whistle, Mourinho claimed that he would use Parrott when the right opportunity arises while he looks at it to slowly slip into him.
& # 39; He is not ready, he is not ready, & said Mourinho of the Irish striker. & # 39; He is a good child, a good talent, he is a child that we want to help. He is a child who needs help, not just in the field but outside the field.
& # 39; He is a child that we are going to take care of from the start and he is a child who clearly has a real chance at the right moment when we feel that it is the moment.
Why was he sitting on the couch? He was sitting on the couch because Erik Lamela told me before the game that he wasn't even ready to go on the couch.
& # 39; So at that moment, without Lamela, we brought in Troy and in the last five minutes we set up a striker who at least knows the position so that he could try to repair Conor Coady, giving him more space and freedom.
& # 39; That's just the way it is. We must try to stay close [to the top four] until we have our power back. & # 39;
Manchester United's younger Tahith Chong & # 39; gives OK to Inter Milan & # 39; to prepare a deal while leaving Old Trafford for free this summer
