Jurgen Klopp questions England’s use of their star man

Jurgen Klopp questions England's use of their star man

Trent Alexander-Arnold deployed in midfield

In England’s game against Andorra, England manager Gareth Southgate delivered a tactical surprise by deploying Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold in central midfield.

Alexander-Arnold lined up on the right side of midfield 3, alongside club captain Jordan Henderson and Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham, with the Liverpool man looking unsurprisingly confident with the ball.

England eventually clinched a 4-0 win over their opponents, who were in second place, meaning it was difficult to judge the quality of the performances of the Three Lions, including Trent. However, he did what was astutely asked of him, and will have left people questioning whether this will be his new role amid the quagmire Southgate faces at right-back.

Klopp joins Henderson in questioning his new role

At the club level, however, it is clear that nothing will change. Speaking to the media ahead of Liverpool’s tie with Leeds United this Sunday, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp questioned the decision to play with his star on right-back in central midfield, asking:

“But why would you make the best right-back in the world a midfielder?

“It’s hard for me to understand how you can think that.”

Klopp isn’t the only Merseyside operator hosting reserves, either, and Jordan Henderson offered the same outlook earlier in the week. Reported in the Echo of Liverpoolsaid the Liverpool captain:

“Trent did some good things. Obviously, it was the first time that he was really in that position, so he is learning all the time, it is a new experience for him. He did very well “.

“We changed personnel a bit in the second half, but it’s a great experience for him. Looking ahead, it’s a possibility for him and the coach will think that’s good for him.

“But at the moment he is so good as a right-back, especially at club level, that I don’t see that changing in the near future.

“But it’s good that the coach here is looking at him to see what he can add, you have to have a lot of talent to play in any position, but for me, he’s so good on the right side throwing crosses that he should hit. to that for now. “

Will Southgate listen to the Liverpool pair or will we see Trent Alexander Arnold in midfield more often?
