Jurgen Klopp Names The Best Player He's 'Signed' At Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp Names The Best Player He's 'Signed' At Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has put together an incredible squad as Liverpool manager, improving players and signing some very good ones, and he's made a surprise choice for his best 'signing.'

The Liverpool boss has led his side to within two wins of capturing their first title in 30 years, a title they'd have wrapped up by now if it weren't for the current pause in football.

Klopp has spent the last few years building a brilliant side and made some excellent signings, even the ones that have broken world records like Alisson and Virgil van Dijk have been worth every penny.

The German, asked by the Pure Football Podcast, who is best signing is revealed that it's a player who was already at the club, Trent Alexander-Arnold.

"It's Trent," the former Borussia Dortmund boss said, "We didn't have to buy him but Pep Lijnders my assistant brought him around and said: 'He played No.6 [role] for me. He played full-back, he played right wing, left wing'.

"Then he came and there was only one problem: Trent was not fit enough.

"But he was a kid so he was not fit enough but we saw immediately, wow, football wise no doubts.

"But [he was] not fit enough so we had to work on that. But then he made steps by himself that were really unbelievable and that was really nice to see.

"Then he made mistakes and didn't give up."

The 21-year-old made his debut in 2016, in a League Cup game against Spurs, and made his first Premier League start just a few months later in a game against Manchester United.

He's gone on to play 125 times already for the Reds and has become an integral part of the way Klopp's side plays, along with fellow full back Andrew Robertson, who could have easily been Klopp's best actual signing considering his £8 million transfer price.

Andrew Robertson Says Liverpool Captain Jordan Henderson Deserves Player Of The Year Award

published at9 months ago

This season Alexander-Arnold has 12 assists to his name in the league, putting him second in the competition just four behind Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne.

Picking a player he didn't actually sign is a bit of a Klopp out but considering how good the England full back has been we're ready to let him off.
