Jurgen Klopp on Trent Alexander-Arnold changing position and whether he would become a midfielder for Liverpool FC
the english full back has been exploring different positions both at liverpool and with the english national team , raising the question of trent changing position in the future.
“If you watch our games then you will see that Trent’s position has already changed. Not in all the games but in games where it is possible then his position changed already.
“So there is no need to now make him now a midfield player. It is a little bit a shame that we talk in 2021 like this about football. Players play everywhere, especially good players are pretty much everywhere. Trent is not very often on the left wing that is true, but on the right wing he was already everywhere on the pitch.
“In this game, in a game where England are that dominant for example, or that we are that dominant that Trent could play in midfield, I would rather he was the 6 than in this case the 8. That is possible but why would you make the best right back in the world a midfielder? I don’t understand that really.

“As if the right back position is not as important as the others. People who say that I struggle to understand how you could think that. Some people think that because he plays 10 yards further up the pitch he would be more influential.
“Being more influential than Trent Alexander-Arnold in the last, I don’t know, how many years he has played for me is really tricky. It would mean I would have to have a proper look to find somebody.
“He plays the right position, we adapt and try and use his skills absolutely, but in the end the right back is the one who defends the right side and he is doing that really well. All the rest when we have the ball, we use him as good as we can.”
