Trent Alexander-Arnold has told The Telegraph that becoming Liverpool captain motivates him every single day.
The youngster also holds a burning desire to become the best right-back in the Premier League era, eclipsing Manchester United star Gary Neville.
Alexander-Arnold has enjoyed a superb season during 2019/20. His three goals and 14 assists have helped Liverpool to their first league title in nearly 30 years.
As a homegrown talent, the defender has no doubts in his mind what his ambition for the future is.
He told The Telegraph: “Becoming Liverpool captain eventually motivates me every day. It’s something I want to achieve. Obviously that will not be my decision, but if I did not manage that before the end of my career I would be disappointed.”
With Neco Williams vying for a place at right-back under Jurgen Klopp’s management, a move into midfield has been mentioned for Alexander-Arnold.
It will perhaps delight Liverpool fans, however, that he has no plans to push a change in position until he has knocked Gary Neville off his perch.
The ex-Manchester United stalwart is widely regarded as the standout right-back of his generation and Alexander-Arnold wants his name to be on people’s lips instead.
He continued: “I think about becoming the best right-back the Premier League has ever seen.
“When everyone picks their best ever Premier League team, I want my name to be in their team and not his!”
Alexander-Arnold has only played 127 appearances for his boyhood club and has already won the lot.
Last season he was instrumental in Klopp’s side winning the Champions League and now he has a league winners medal to go alongside it.
His 14 assists from right-back would put a lot of midfielders to shame and Alexander-Arnold is already on the path towards stardom.
