Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told the club’s official website that Trent Alexander-Arnold is unstoppable.

Klopp has raved about the 21-year-old England international right-back, and the Liverpool boss believes that the youngster can only get better.

The German coach has praised the youngster’s attitude, and he believes that only injuries can stop his progress.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Alexander-Arnold: “Apart from injuries, I can't see anything that can stop him because his attitude and his private background is just so good. Passionate yes, very, but calm as well.

“It’s a very, very good basis his family created for him – he has a very close relationship to them, which is good. They keep him grounded; I am not sure he needs it, but if he would start flying then I know exactly who would get him back. I don't have to do that.

"When you are a talented footballer and you have an outstanding attitude, if you love the game as much as he loves the game, and you have the background he has, then it’s pretty likely you will have a proper career.”

Top-quality player

Alexander-Arnold has established himself as a key figure in the Liverpool team under manager Klopp and is pretty much guaranteed a place in the starting lineup.

The 21-year-old is very good defensively, and he is stunning when he goes on marauding runs.

The right-back also has a brilliant range of passing, and given his young age, he can only get better and better.

Stats

Alexander-Arnold has made 20 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for Liverpool so far this season, scoring two goals and providing eight assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

The Englishman has also made four starts and one substitute appearance in the Champions League for the Reds so far this campaign, providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.
