Trent Alexander-Arnold has established himself as a fan favourite and mainstay of the Liverpool team and arguably the best right-back in world football.
It’s been a sharp rise for the academy graduate and the tweet that announced his first professional contract has been re-circulated online, of late.
The news in 2015 that a certain ‘midfielder, who celebrates his 17th birthday today‘, had signed his first contract provided some mixed feedback by supporters.

@LFC @trentaa98 possibly a more important signing than Klopp in my opinion. Nice one Trent lad.

It’s certainly a mixed bag and reading through the six-year-old comments illustrates where the club was at, during that period of time.
Fans begging for Jurgen Klopp to be appointed, didn’t have to wait too long and those who tipped the Scouser for success couldn’t have got it much more right!
This is a really interesting look into the not too distant past and a great barometer of 2015 Liverpool, little did we all know then that the next six years were going to be some of the very best!
