Gary Neville has claimed that Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold could go on to become the best English right-back of all time.
Alexander-Arnold, 22, is already considered one of the best full-backs in Europe, but Neville thinks he can still go on to become so much more.
The West Derby academy graduate has already won the Premier League and the Champions League, and Neville believes there are only a few areas of Alexander-Arnold’s game that need tidying up for him to become a complete player.
Neville on Trent
During a Q&A on his official Twitter account, the former Manchester United captain pinpointed how Alexander-Arnold could become his country’s best right-back of all time.
While Neville recently sent a figurative message outlining why Alexander-Arnold indeed is a ‘fantastic player’, the player himself has sent out a literal response with his performance levels in recent weeks.

The England international helped put to bed a barren run of form on Sunday evening as Liverpool overcame Sheffield United in a 2-0 victory.
The real message from Alexander-Arnold, however, was on the pitch. It was another timely reminder of his undeniable quality and put to bed any mutterings that he has lost his touch in recent months.
Alexander-Arnold rounded off a stunning display with a total of three shots, three chances created as well as two tackles and two interceptions, per WhoScored.
Since he joined Liverpool, Alexander-Arnold has scored nine goals and clocked up a whopping 40 assists from defence.
Neville’s comments today show that sometimes people are too quick to write off a player, who is still very-much in the development phase of his scary.
It really is scary to think how much Liverpool’s talismanic and inspirational home-grown sensation can still improve.
