But his exclusion from The Three Lions squad baffled Klopp who said he respects Southgate's decision but says he did not understand it.

The Reds boss said: "If Trent Alexander-Arnold is not in the squad then England must have an extremely good squad.

"I was surprised when he didn't get the call-up. I respect the decision, of course I do. But I didn't understand it.

"I am a manager myself; I make decisions every day, every weekend, every midweek about team selections and squad selections."

Steven Gerrard 'Disagrees' With Gareth Southgate's Decision To Omit Trent Alexander-Arnold From England Squad

"I respect that Gareth makes his own decisions, of course, but I didn't understand it anyway because Trent Alexander-Arnold was in the last two seasons at least, let me say the season before and the season before that, the stand out right-back in world football - that is the truth and at an unbelievable young age.

"He started the season with Covid and you can imagine it took him a while to get into the season, but from the moment when he was in the season, he was one of our most consistent players and a stand-out player.

"He could play all the time, high level all these types of things, so that cannot be the reason that he was not in the squad."

Should Alexander-Arnold be named in the England squad for the European Championships this summer?
