Jurgen Klopp has been given a heartfelt tribute by Alexander Trent Arnold.
When asked what Klopp had done for his career, Alexander-Arnold said: “Everything. Without him who knows what would’ve happened. He’s the one that’s given me more opportunities, more than I can ask for.
“He’s put a lot of trust and faith in me personally. I’ve tried to repay him every time he’s done that. Hopefully there will be four more years of success.”
Alexander-Arnold added: “I think within his first few weeks he was down at the academy watching the young lads. That gave a bit more faith and a statement to the club he was going to give young players chances.
“He has shown over the four years that he has given young players chances. He’s given opportunities and I’m one of the youngsters that’s been given them.”
“The last few years have been a whirlwind,” he said. “It’s all gone so quickly. I never expected things to go so well, but I’ve been blessed enough and lucky enough to be given the opportunities by the right managers and the right time.
“I’ve been able to take those opportunities and I’ve been given more. I’m just really grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given.
“It’s the same as if you haven’t won a trophy. You want to do more, that determination and hunger to win silverware never dies out.
“No matter how many you win, it’ll never be enough for you. You want to keep pushing to get better as a player and as a team. The aim is always to win, that’s the mentality we want at the minute.”
