Conor Coady has lauded the impact Trent Alexander-Arnold has made at Liverpool since breaking through the ranks as an 18-year-old.

The young Scouser’s piece of inspired genius in the Anfield comeback over Barcelona proved the difference as he helped his side return from the dead by beating the Catalonians 4-0.

They went on to win the Champions League, immortalising themselves in the club’s decorated history.

“It’s incredible,” Coady told Liverpool’s official club website. “People have to realise how tough it is to make it at such a big club like this and realise what he has actually done.

“How he has gone about his business is absolutely brilliant.


“You see how much he loves Liverpool Football Club, I’ve heard him talk plenty of times saying he wants to go on to be Liverpool captain, he wants to spend his career at Liverpool, this is his club – and you really believe him when he says it.”

Nothing would make supporters happier than for Trent to continue growing and one day be named captain of Liverpool in the same way that Steven Gerrard was him.

Not only does Alexander-Arnold have the talent but as a Scouser, he knows better than most what it means to play for Liverpool Football Club.

In a few years, he’d be a fitting captain.
