It was one that taught me to be patient...Trent Alexander-Arnold talks about his feelings on being away Career

England defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has now developed into a world-class right-back under Jurgen Klopp.His new season, in which he was appointed vice-captain, has been productive, winning the Carabao Cup and being involved in the Premier League title race.

On the other hand, he personally suffered a hamstring injury and ruptured ligaments that forced him to spend a total of nearly 100 days off the bench. Looking back on those days, the 25-year-old right-back is positive that he was taught to be patient, although he prefers not to get injured.

“Of course it’s never nice to be injured. You want to play as many games as you can and help the team, but sometimes these things happen.”

“It was a tough time, it was one that taught me to be patient and a time that was difficult. It’s never nice for any player to be injured but it just makes you stronger, appreciate the times when you’re fit and able to play games.”

During the period when the England defender was out, young 20-year-old defender Conor Bradley played a major role and quickly developed into a regular player.

He put in some of his best performances for Bolton last season, and his rapid development over the year has shown in the Liverpool first team.In addition, 27-year-old defender Joe Gomez returned to the England squad with quality performances not only as a right-back but also as a left-back.

Finally, the vice-captain is delighted with their performances, along with the Northern Ireland defender, who has been on the pitch in 23 games this season.

“You just want people to step up and help the team win games,”

“Conor did really well throughout that time to be able to step in and do really well.”

“Of course Joe Gomez as well, who was exceptional over the course of the season. Both of them have been really good.”

The 25-year-old defender, whose contract runs until June 2025, is due to be negotiated for renewal this summer. Everyone involved with the club wants him to stay at Anfield, but there are also rumours of interest from Real Madrid.

As a result, Alexander-Arnold, who should remain at Liverpool beyond 2025, will shine in the season when his mentor Klopp retires.
