"It is no secret" - Top agent says one Liverpool player has shown 'arrogance' this season

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold criticised amid the Reds poor form

Football agent Rob Segal has stated that you can ‘feel’ Trent Alexander-Arnold’s arrogance when watching Liverpool this season.

The 23-year-old has had a poor start to the campaign in tandem with his side, who sit seventh in the Premier League and third in their UEFA Champions League group.

He has been exposed when Liverpool are counter-attacked with his failings to get back to a defensive position, which has caused questions about his attitude.

The Reds have been outrun in each of their matches this season, which is uncharacteristic of a Jurgen Klopp team. The defending for Napoli’s second goal in the week typified this.

Segal, who used to represent the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling, explained that Alexander-Arnold may also be suffering from fatigue.

Liverpool have major injury problems which haven’t helped and a player like Trent Alexander-Arnold probably needs a prolonged rest.

“However, because of his standing within the club, you can feel his arrogance when he is slowly running back to goal."

"Alexander-Arnold knows that no matter what he does, right or wrong, he is likely to start week in, week out."

“It is no secret that Alexander-Arnold is a lot better going forward than he is defensively, so his weaknesses need to be covered and unfortunately for Klopp, at the moment, none of his side’s backline are playing particularly well."

"The timing of their drop-off in form has been really unfortunate.”

Segal may have a point about the competition, Liverpool let Welsh international Neco Williams join Nottingham Forest and replaced him with Aberdeen’s Calvin Ramsay.

The Scot has been injured since arriving at Anfield, and is the only direct full-back competition to Alexander-Arnold at just 18.

Joe Gomez and James Milner can play in the role, but it is neither of their natural positions.

It is a conundrum for Klopp, and he will need to solve it to make the most of the Scouser’s talent.
