(Video) Richards doubles down on Alexander-Arnold theory; Southgate should try it

Posted by

Trent Alexander-Arnold has made plenty of headlines during the Euros and his inclusion or removal from the starting line-up seems to cause mass debate.

Speaking on ‘The Rest Is Football’, Micah Richards added: “stick to your usual defenders, if you want to put Walker left back I would go with that and maybe Trent right back but no I won’t put Saka left back.”

After calls for a new left back to be put in the team and a lack of an available option due to Gareth Southgate’s strange squad choices, this could provide the Scouser a route back into the starting line-up.

Given the intense media scrutiny though, our vice captain may be better off out of the firing line and away from the manager’s hapless tactics.
