Trent Alexander-Arnold's brother and agent 'likes' post criticising Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp over signing
| Last updated
The brother and agent of Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold has 'liked' a post which criticises the Reds over one of their new signings.
Jurgen Klopp's side brought in four new players this summer, with all the additions strengthening their midfield.
Alexis Mac Allister's arrival was confirmed once the transfer window opened, with Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch also moving to Anfield before the window closed.
The Reds have started strongly this season, winning five and drawing one of their opening six Premier League matches. Mac Allister and Szoboszlai in particular have played significant roles.
But Alexander-Arnold's brother and agent has 'liked' a post which criticises the Reds over the deal completed to sign Endo.
Tyler Alexander-Arnold liked a post on X (Twitter) from Liverpool supporter @LFCLaurie, which reads: "Spending £16m on Endo and handing him a four-year deal is exactly why we need a sporting director in.
"It made no sense and still makes no sense. I love Klopp but his talent ID can stink at times."

Tyler Alexander-Arnold is part of the PLG Group agency, where he is listed as a director and handles his brother's affairs.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, meanwhile, is signed to the agency as part of a co-deal.
As well as the Reds right-back, PLG also represent his Liverpool team-mate Andrew Robertson, West Ham star Jarrod Bowen and Brentford defender Aaron Hickey.
The agency also represents several Liverpool youngsters, who all play for the club's age group sides.
Endo, meanwhile, has made two starts and three substitute appearances since joining Liverpool from Stuttgart in August.
Speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over West Ham, in which the Japan captain had a three-minute cameo as a substitute, Klopp explained: "He needs to get used to the things here. Wataru is a super guy, very calm and very polite and that cost him the first two weeks, maybe.
"You saw that today he is there, he will help us a lot, he will play games, he will start games and all these kinds of things. It's all good, he had already three or four games now for us in a very short period. That is what counts.
"Wataru is a super important part of the squad and I am really happy to have him."
