Danny Murphy has apologised to Trent Alexander-Arnold for repeatedly getting his name wrong during a commentating gig.
The former Liverpool midfielder spent around ten minutes saying the young defender’s name in the wrong order.
Murphy recently shared some of his favourite moments from this season, and admitted his slip up in the gantry is probably one of the funniest for him.
“At my own expense. I spent ten minutes on the radio referring to Liverpool’s great young full-back as Alexander Trent-Arnold,” he told the Daily Mail.
“Boy, I’ve had stick ever since. Nothing I’ve said has been picked up so fast. Sorry, Trent!”
It’s fascinating that nobody picked up on Murphy’s mistake for ten minutes. I can only think he’s heard Trent being referred to as such and assumed it’s his surname,
It doesn’t help that the full-back’s three names can all be used as first names!
In the same Mail report, Murphy also gives his thoughts on the best player and manager of the season and, of course, went for Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and Jurgen Klopp.
He claimed that the centre back has helped improve the players around him, including Trent, and that for the boss to mount a Premier League title challenge and reach a European final is nothing short of amazing.
