Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has signed a new contract at Liverpool which will keep him at the club until 2025.
The right-back who unfortunately missed the European Championships through injury is one of the best in the world in his position, so it is very understandable why Liverpool have tied him down to a long-term deal.
“It’s a proud moment for me, it always is, signing a new contract here. To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling” said the 22-year-old.
Being a local lad who has shown his desire to one day be Liverpool captain there was always a feeling from supporters that he will be at Liverpool for his whole career.
This new contract is a good step in that direction.
Having played 179 timed for the club, scoring 10 goals and assisting a mammoth 44 many view him as a club legend already especially due to how vital he was in the Champions League and Premier League winning seasons.
Corner taken quickly may spring to mind, which highlights how important he has been in a nutshell.
He also said: “The state the club is in and where I’m at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I’m here longer is always a good thing. I’m made up.
“It’s the only club I’ve ever really known, so to be here for this amount of time and extending to be here for a longer amount of time is amazing for me and my family.”
He has been Liverpool’s main creative force for a few seasons now and the new contract only emphasises how vital he is to Jurgen Klopp.
The new deal makes him one of the highest-earners at the club, according to reports, now meaning that he is not just the young right-back with special talent anymore, he is one of the main men and will be for years to come.
“I live the dream every day really. Being able to represent the club and to be in and around names and players, and obviously managers and staff, that are world class every day is a privilege for me and I’m very fortunate to be in the position I am” said the England international.
Having been at the club since he was six and having won the two biggest trophies on offer he will have always be remembered regardless of what happened next but now with this new contract the path is there for him to create more history at his boyhood club.
