Since his teenage years, local defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has been a fixture in Liverpool’s first team, winning the Premier League, Champions League, League Cup, and FA Cup titles as a right back.
The England defender, who has been named vice-captain this season to lead the team, has entered a new era in his career, playing as a false back midway through last season and also playing in midfield for the national team.
The 25-year-old defender says he has won many things in his career, but still has big dreams and ambitions, and that he must control himself and improve himself in order to achieve them.
“The end of last season, the summer camp with England, that was the foundation to go and build on what I’ve built from.”
“There were 10 or 15 games that I laid a good foundation for. And then for me it was about demanding more from me.”
“I’ve got high dreams and ambitions, and although I’ve achieved a lot of them, there’s still so much more that I want to achieve. And it’s about going and doing that.”
“I’ve realised, for me, I’m not a young player anymore. [I’m] getting into hopefully the peak years of my career and how can I get the best out of that? And I’m the one that’s responsible for it, I’m the one that can make that happen.”
“I’ve always felt like I’ve been in control of what I can go and achieve as a player, I just needed the opportunities to go and do that.”Channel 4
