Klopp is full of praise for Trent

Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on Trent Alexander-Arnold, after the 25-year-old’s return to first team action.

“Everything grew since I’ve known him. He became a real man,” he said during the pre-Everton press copnference. “Fantastic player from the first day, outstanding talent turned into an outstanding, world-class football player.

“It’s pretty rare that, as a manager as well, you are part of such a journey for such a long time. Trent never had a different manager in professional football so it will be good for him to get new influences in the future, that’s definitely clear.

“But I think we can be quite happy with the steps he made. When you see him now playing you just see what a good player he is, it’s crazy.

“There’s nothing bad to say about Trent and his development. He is one of these stories that not a lot of clubs can really write, but he is one of the people that people will talk about in 20, 30 and 40 years, 100%.

“That’s really nice for a boy from West Derby, it’s probably the best you can achieve in life.”
