Perhaps we should get Steven Gerrard back to the club as a scout, first up?
Because he clearly has an eye for talent having lauded Trent Alexander-Arnold two years back when our starlet was just 16-years-old!
The Englishman, now 18, started against Tottenham last night and impressed everyone with his energetic performance up the right flank.
But our legendary former captain Gerrard already saw it coming…
“Trent Arnold has a terrific chance of making it as a top professional,” he previously told the Echo.
“He’s quite leggy but he’s got a lovely frame and seems to have all the attributes you need.
“He has the right attitude and comes from West Derby, home to Melwood. So Trent is another Scouser and apparently, just as I tried to be John Barnes and Steve McMahon, he grew up pretending to be me while playing in the Merseyside parks.
“He can play as a number 6, a holding midfielder, but he’s versatile and I’ve seen him fill various positions. I know England are all over him.”
It’s interesting what Gerrard says regarding the youngster’s position. So far for Liverpool’s Under-23s and for the first-team last night, he’s been a bombarding fullback, but he has the strength and dynamism to play more centrally – either as a holding midfielder or a box-to-box one.
Remember, Gerrard himself started as a right-back for us – before it became all too obvious he was far too talented to stay in that position.
We cannot wait to see what becomes of Alexander-Arnold, the 18th Scouser to make his Liverpool debut since Gerrard did back in 1998.
