Jose Enrique backs £75k-a-week Liverpool player to have world-class season
Jose Enrique has confidently claimed that Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold will have a world-class season when it kickstarts next month.
Alexander-Arnold, who earns £75,000-a-week, has shot to fame as one of the world’s very best right-backs in the last few years.
The 22-year-old has already won the Premier League and Champions League with his boyhood club.
However, the full-back was questioned at times during the last campaign. That included him being omitted from an England squad in March.
There was a general feeling from neutral that his standards had slipped, but in fairness he finished the 2020/21 season strongly to get back in the England picture. Unfortunately, an injury kept him out of the Euros.
Enrique has delivered a blunt message that he has faith in Alexander-Arnold to shine when the new 2021/22 season begins.
“He is going to have a world-class season you will see,” Enrique said on Instagram.
Alexander-Arnold a Liverpool diamond
For Liverpool, the standards they set during a two-year period between 2018-20 were never sustainable.
Most of the Reds squad suffered a small drop off last year, but it’s scary when you factor in Alexander-Arnold is still only 22.
The Liverpool-born ace is one of the individuals in Klopp’s XI that can dictate a game.
His return of 44 assists in 179 Liverpool appearances highlights the kind of influence he has offensively, so it’s no surprise he spends most games in his opponents half. Also, he’s not as defensively weak as some make out.
It could well be another gigantic season from Alexander-Arnold.
