Trent Alexander-Arnold, the Liverpool star, has revealed his hilarious reaction to watching Manchester United lift the Carabao Cup in English. The 22-year-old right-back, who has been a key figure in the Reds’ success over the past few years, admitted that it ‘burns’ to see their rivals win a trophy.
Alexander-Arnold, who has been a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s side since 2016, was speaking to Sky Sports after United’s 2-0 win over Southampton in the Carabao Cup final. The England international said: “It burns, it burns. It’s not nice to see them lift a trophy, but it’s part and parcel of football.”
The Liverpool star also revealed that he was pleased for his former teammate, Jesse Lingard, who scored the opening goal in the final. Alexander-Arnold said: “I’m happy for Jesse, he’s a good friend of mine and I’m sure he’s delighted to have scored the goal.”
Alexander-Arnold’s comments come after Liverpool’s disappointing season, which saw them finish sixth in the Premier League and fail to qualify for the Champions League. The Reds have also been knocked out of the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup, and are now relying on a top-four finish in the league to qualify for Europe’s elite competition.
The 22-year-old has been a key figure in Liverpool’s success over the past few years, and his performances have earned him a place in the PFA Team of the Year for the past two seasons. Alexander-Arnold has also been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award this season, and is widely regarded as one of the best right-backs in the world.
Despite his disappointment at seeing United lift the Carabao Cup, Alexander-Arnold is determined to help Liverpool get back to winning ways. The Reds are currently fourth in the Premier League, and have a crucial game against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
Alexander-Arnold is determined to help Liverpool get back to winning ways, and he will be hoping to help the Reds secure a top-four finish and qualify for the Champions League. The 22-year-old is also determined to help Liverpool win the Premier League title next season, and he will be hoping to lead the Reds to glory in the coming years.
