TAA reveals his lofty ambitions to become Liverpool captain and ‘the best right-back in the world’

Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold has revealed his ambitions to one day captain both club and country, as well as becoming ‘the best right-back in the world’.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a superb season for Jurgen Klopp’s side, being named in the PFA Team of the Year and helping Liverpool to a record 97 point haul in the Premier League as well as Champions League glory.

It marked another season of improvement for the England international, who registered more Premier League assists than any other defender, with the academy graduate revealing his lofty ambitions to reach the very top of the game.

“I am fortunate to have the people around me who understand the balance between letting me get comfortable, praising me too much and feeding that hunger that needs to be there in terms of wanting to strive to be better, wanting to be one of the best players in the world, the best right-back in the world, being the first name on the team-sheet, wanting to be Liverpool captain, wanting to be England captain,” Alexander-Arnold told Sky Sports.

“That’s the main thing for me. It’s not selfishness to think this is what I have done it is about what the team has done and is doing. It is we and not I. We have achieved things as a team.

“To be recognised as one of the best in the world you have to have silverware behind you. That’s important to us as a team to be recognised as one of the best.”
