Trent Alexander-Arnold unveils new look and hints at Liverpool role for 2023/24 season

Trent Alexander-Arnold unveils new look and hints at Liverpool role for 2023/24 season

The Reds star could be given a new role next season.

"New season, new me" were words uttered by Trent Alexander-Arnold upon his return to Liverpool training today, as he unveiled a brand new look on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old reported back to training along with 13 other first-team players for the first day of pre-season, joining the rest of the squad who have started their preparations on Saturday.

Alexander-Arnold, much like the rest of the Liverpool squad, dipped below his usual performance levels last season, with the Reds finishing fifth in the Premier League table.

Although the Englishman did experience a resurgence of form towards the end of the campaign after being utilised further forward by Jurgen Klopp, registering seven assists in his final 10 matches.

There is an expectation among supporters that the Liverpool boss will build on this approach during 2023/24, and deploy the natural right-back in a more attacking position.

Alexander-Arnold hints at new role

Alexander-Arnold has ditched his dreadlocks for a shorter style synonymous with his rise through Liverpool's ranks.

In a video posted on Liverpool's Twitter, he was filmed embracing Luis Diaz and new signing Alexis Mac Allister in the hallway of the AXA Training Centre, with Diaz quick to pick up on Alexander-Arnold's new style.

When asked about the new hair by a member of staff, the defender hinted that it wasn't just his hair that would change this season.

"Hair speaks for itself. Fresh start, new season, new me. We're back and we're better", Alexander-Arnold said with a smile on his face.

Indeed, the new signing of Dominik Szoboszlai could give Alexander-Arnold the licence to roam further forward and continue creating chances for the likes of Darwin Nunez in front of him

He also played the role for England in their most recent victories over Malta and North Macedonia, displaying his natural ability in the middle of the park.

Speaking after his country's 4-0 win over Malta in June, where he scored a stunning goal, he said the position felt 'natural' and 'comfortable'.

"I haven't played it too much, but it feels comfortable," said Alexander-Arnold.

"It feels natural, I will say that. It's somewhere I can see myself playing. I want to make sure I am regularly on the team sheet and that was a good foundation to build on.

"I think the role I've been playing with club football, it's a new avenue," he added. "It's still early doors, it's only one match, but it's important that when I get the opportunity, I take it."
