Trent Alexander Arnold hit back at critics
Trent Alexander Arnold has come under huge criticism from many for not being able to contribute much defensively.
For the first time this season, many came at Trent for his defending in Liverpool’s 3-2 loss to Arsenal.
In the eyes of many, his defensive positioning is to be blamed for the goals Liverpool conceded.
Tren in an interview has also hit back at his critics claiming to focus on defending is like playing with shakes on.
“I never like to play the position, I play the game,” he told GQ. “[If] you play the position, it limits you. It’s like playing with shackles on.
“I’ve always thought that with a sensible mind, play the game, get in positions that will hurt the opposition, and at the same time do the defensive work you need to do.
“It’s more: Play the game how it needs to be played.”

“It just becomes a bit too familiar, and it loses that special World Cup feeling,” the Liverpool man said. “Teams wouldn’t change, and things wouldn’t really change that much.
“Whereas every four years, you’re looking at a whole new evolution of the team. It’s just a lot of time for things to happen, and it gives young players more of a chance to be able to make it.”
