Trent Alexander Arnold : Liverpool’s own.

Of all the brilliant stories behind Liverpool’s thrilling run to the champions league final, Trent’s story is right up there. This 19-year-old kid from West Derby has made waves ever since he’s taken over the right-back spot at Liverpool since the injury of Nathanial Clyne. He first came into the limelight when he scored a brilliant free kick against Hoffenheim that kick-started Liverpool’s journey to Kiev, and his game against Real Madrid meant that he became the youngest player in the club’s history to play in the European club final and his rise has been nothing short of remarkable.


Just two years ago, the Liverpudlian youngster made his debut for Liverpool’s under-21’s and his journey to the main squad was not easy for the academy graduate. It’s only his hard work and determination that has earned him a place in the main squad and he’s just getting started. They say one man’s loss is another man’s gain and that’s what has happened to Alexander Arnold when senior England right back Nathanial Clyne got injured and he’s welcomed it with both hands making use of the opportunity he’s got.


Trent’s ability and willingness to learn from his mistakes have played a key role in his development because most young players today are reluctant to learn as they think they have already arrived which makes them complacent and therefore affects their game. He came under scrutiny when he was exposed by Manchester United winger Marcus Rashford and Crystal Palace winger Wilfred Zaha and although he has bounced back, he admits that he’s aware of the fact that it won’t be a smooth ride to the top, but he would always put in the hard work to cope with it.

But his greatest achievement in his young career as yet has to be his call-up for the English national squad that’s traveling to Russia for the world cup. It’s not often that your childhood dream of representing your country in a world cup comes true at the age of 19. Whether he gets game time or not, only time will tell but the experience that he will gain at such a young age is truly remarkable.
