“Outstanding”: Jurgen Klopp exclaims his gratitude to Liverpool for signing a player who “nearly” was relegated.Trent Alexander-Arnold is rumored to be at odds with Jurgen Klopp regarding the optimal Liverpool position.Trent Alexander-Arnold, a star for Liverpool, has experienced life as a midfielder in recent months and admits he has relished playing in a more advanced central position.Trent Alexander-Arnold has acknowledged that, despite spending the past few months playing in a more advanced capacity for both club and country, his future most likely rests in the midfield.

 

The 25-year-old Liverpool vice-captain made his debut at Anfield as a right-back and has continued to be utilized predominantly in that capacity by Jurgen Klopp thus far this season, although he is permitted to venture into central areas higher up the field. In contrast, Gareth Southgate has resorted to centralizing Alexander-Arnold’s position in European qualifiers, a change from his previous recommendation that he play in the midfield.

Since being promoted to midfield for the second half of the 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at the weekend, Alexander-Arnold has once again been an influential figure for Liverpool in his new hybrid role. Moreover, he has now suggested that he considers that region to be his future.Alexander-Arnold was asked in an interview with The Liverpool Echo about his stance on playing as a midfielder. He responded, “I believe that’s the trajectory and path I’m currently following. In the end, that is not my choice; however, I do take pleasure in playing in the middle of the field and, truth be told, all I want is to assist the team win games.

 

Although Alexander-Arnold may be content with his new position with the club and the national team, Klopp has made no secret of his reluctance to demote him from right back.

 

In September 2021, Klopp stated, “If you observe our matches, you will notice that Trent’s position has changed whenever feasible. At this time, it is unnecessary to convert him to the position of midfielder. It is unfortunate that we are discussing this in 2021, but good players and Trent both occupy right wing positions everywhere. He is capable of midfield. A greater six than eight.”However, why would you assign the world’s greatest right-back to the midfield position? It is difficult to comprehend how you could possibly hold such a viewpoint. Some believe he is capable of exerting greater influence in the midfield. How is it possible to surpass Trent Alexander-Arnold in terms of influence? We make the most efficient use of him.”Since then, Klopp has considerably softened his stance, but Alexander-Arnold has continued to play predominantly at right back this season. Neither has it diminished his impact on the team.

 

In 19 matches across all competitions this season, Alexander-Arnold has accumulated five assists and two goals. Notably, he scored consecutive goals against Manchester City and Fulham. On the weekend, he contributed his entire 90 minutes to the Reds’ 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace, which pushed them to the top of the Premier League standings.
