Saw the bit on the news about Trent setting up and funding an organisation to help.lads released from academies. Good lad
Trent Alexander-Arnold on football academies and release of players - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/65399672
Yes I had a good look at this yesterday. It was an eye opener for sure.
I'd be happy for us to buy a good right back this summer and move Trent into midfield next season. I've been very critical of him this season and rightly so. Defensively he just isn't upto it or appear to want to do this side of the game.
But his ability on the ball isn't in question and going forward and creatively he's been much much better lately. His passes are crisp and decisive and it really adds alot to us. I think it's a position he could grow into ... he's only scratching the surface currently. At the end of the day ... he's still a young lad but you have to keep improving in this game.
I'm not a fan of him being a right back and then pushing on leaving others to cover. I'd rather us just have a good right back and trent permanently further up. With his range of passing and the way he strikes the ball he will be very dangerous.
Son for example will cause problems down our right side on Sunday and I don't like the idea of matip or fabinho covering trents position.
A good few games for Trent. I hope it continues and he can take it into next season.
