Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, has named full back Trent Alexander Arnold as the best signing he has made during his Anfield reign.
Klopp has sanctioned a lot of successful transfers at Anfield such as Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah, Virgil Van dijk, Fabinho and Andrew Robertson.
But Klopp doesn’t consider any of these signings to be the greatest he’s made at Liverpool.
When asked In an interview, Klopp explained that his best signing wasn’t a signing at all, rather a player he promoted from the academy.
“It’s Trent [Alexander-Arnold],” Klopp said. “We didn’t have to buy him but Pep Lijnders my assistant brought him around and said: ‘He played No.6 [role] for me. He played full-back, he played right wing, left wing’.
“Then he came and there was only one problem: Trent was not fit enough.
“But he was a kid so he was not fit enough but we saw immediately, wow, football wise no doubts.
“But [he was] not fit enough so we had to work on that. But then he made steps by himself that were really unbelievable and that was really nice to see.
“Then he made mistakes and didn’t give up.”
