Alexander-Arnold confirms he wants to captain and retire at Liverpool

In our recent history there has never been a better time to be a Liverpool fan. We are back on our perch, we are champions of Europe, champions of the world and look set to be crowned champions of England once again. To top it all off, we are back to having a world class Scouser in our team. As if it were in any doubt, Trent Alexander-Arnold has confirmed that he wants to captain Liverpool and retire at the club as a legend.

This week saw one of the greatest full back performances in Premier League history. Trent Alexander-Arnold, the Scouser in our team, tore Leicester City apart.

The Reds ran out 4-0 winners at the King Power stadium, devastating their closest challengers in the table. Trent bagged two assists and a goal during the rout and could have had a few more assists to his name had the front line been more clinical.

Trent told SportsBladet in Sweden (via The Independent):

“I’ve always wanted to be a club legend. Winning titles, playing as many matches as possible, winning matches, becoming captain. Of course, I can’t become a legend if I leave Liverpool to play elsewhere. So, my focus is there and on making the club as successful as possible.”

What RTK has to say

Trent Alexander-Arnold is destined to captain Liverpool Football Club. Whisper it but there is a chance that this boy could go on to be as good as, if not better than, Steven Gerrard.


The full back has already clocked up more appearances at 21 than Stevie G had at the same age. It now seems to be more of a question of when will Trent ascend to the captaincy as opposed to will he.

Alexander-Arnold is arguably one of the most valuable players in the world at the minute because of this loyalty. The other names you would associate with being the most expensive players in the world could still be bought – there is surely no sum that would convince the Reds to part with their local hero.
