Klopp responded to Alexander-Arnold's critics

Some believe that the English star does not perform well in defense.


boss Jurgen Klopp has responded to critics of

Trent Alexander-Arnold

by claiming he would not have played for Liverpool if he did not have the quality.

Alexander-Arnold sent an assist to

Sadio Mane

in the recent game against West Ham at Anfield to increase his assist tally to 16 this season, his best record in the Premier League. The English star's attacking abilities have never been questioned, but some believe that he is not good enough in defense and that he creates problems for his team. But Klopp disagreed and defended Arnold.

He said:

“Absolutely, I don’t understand that, that’s true, but I don’t think I will change that with whatever I will say.

“But if he couldn’t defend, he would not play here – at least not that in that position.

“He improved in all departments and defending of course as well, but he is so young that he can improve and has to improve, but yes, his defending is not a problem we have.”

Alexander-Arnold made his Liverpool debut in 2016 and has made 211 appearances for the club. He has been one of the main factors in his team's championship in the Champions League and Premier League.
