Trent Alexander-Arnold Hilariously Responds To Gary Lineker's Idea That He Should Change Position

Trent Alexander-Arnold Hilariously Responds To Gary Lineker's Idea That He Should Change Position

Trent Alexander-Arnold has responded to Gary Lineker who has claimed the Liverpool full-back could have a chance in central midfield.

Alexander-Arnold has been one of Liverpool's stand out performers from right-back since his emergence a few seasons ago and his passing ability is brilliant.

Gary Lineker stated on Twitter that he'd like to see the 21-year-old play in midfield and that he could be similar to Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne.

The England international chimed back stating he wanted to conquer the right back position first.

He's played 101 games for Jurgen Klopp's side and has assisted 28 goals in that time.

Last season he equaled the record for assists by defenders in the Premier League, notching up 12.

His most infamous is likely the assist for Divock Origi to send Liverpool to the Champions League final.

Trent stood over a corner on the right hand side while Barcelona organised themselves for the set-piece.

But Alexander-Arnold took the corner at breakneck pace which Origi latched on to and he fired home.

Lineker isn't the only former pro who sees Alexander-Arnold's future in the middle of the park.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher told Norweigan outlet Viasport Fotball that he wouldn't be against a position change in the future.

"People talk about the future and could he come into midfield and be a Kevin De Bruyne type player and he has more quality now than Liverpool's midfield players.

"You think about the crosses that De Bruyne puts in from the right midfield position and maybe that's a position where Trent could play."

But 'Carra' thinks the England man shouldn't be moved right now because he's nailed that right-back spot down as his own at Anfield.

"At the moment you wouldn't think about moving position because he is playing so well.

"Defensively at times he can be suspect and the opposition maybe think they can get at Liverpool there because he pushes forward so much.

"His positional player and focus needs to be 100% focused, but he's probably thinking 'I've got Van Dijk next to me so I'll be ok'."

Do you think Alexander-Arnold could move into midfield in the future?
