Trent Alexander-Arnold says he is relishing the chance to compete in another Champions League final as Liverpool take on Real Madrid this weekend.
Jurgen Klopp’s team face the record 13-time winners at the Stade de France on Saturday evening, looking to add the Champions League to their FA Cup and League Cup honours this season.
The clash will be a third final in just five seasons for the Reds, who were beaten by Real Madrid in 2018 before winning the competition against Tottenham the following season.
Alexander-Arnold has spoken of his excitement at competing in club football’s biggest fixture once again and is preparing for another ‘special’ occasion in Paris.
“To even be in with a chance of a second Champions League title at this age is special for me,” he told a pre-match press conference.
“There’s been many legends of the game who haven’t had this opportunity. It’s a privilege but we have a world-class opponent in front of us.”
The 23-year-old discussed how Liverpool will deal with the pressure of a Champions League final, but believes the Reds will embrace the challenge as the club look to add more silverware to their collection.
“You can try your best to say it’s another big game but everything around it, it’s something we don’t do regularly,” he added.
“I think we embrace these occasions. These are the ones in your mind when you’re working hard behind the scenes.
“We deserve to be here.”
