Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool's 22-year-old right-back, is considered the strongest performer in his role in soccer today. Already winner of an English Premier League, a UEFA Champions League, a European Super Cup and a Club World Cup, the boy from Liverpool spoke to him in an exclusive interview for Italian newspaper Gazzetta Active many details of his life and his career.
He said: "Liverpool? We have been working hard all summer for this new season and the first few games show how focused and determined we are to take home trophies this year. It is clear that playing the World Cup would be fantastic, but at the moment I am focused on Liverpool and the desire to give our fans some good reasons to celebrate all together, now that we can again.
" Regarding his passions, Trent said: "I'm a super football fan and, when I'm not playing, I watch the games of other teams to analyze the play of potential opponents and carefully observe the great players.
I am convinced that there is always something to be had. I also like to watch American sports, especially NBA, but when there is a game to play then I prefer chess. They relax me because they force you to concentrate so much that you don't have to worry about anything else.
They are also very useful for train the brain to think one step at a time. I love the strategy and concentration needed. We play so much that I always have to be focused on football, but I try to stay as close to my family as possible and spend time with them when I'm not training or voyage."
On nutrition: "I am an athlete and I have to eat well if I want to be 100% performing. To be honest, I'm not one of the most adventurous in the world of food, but here at Liverpool we are lucky because we have a great team of nutritionists and chefs who help us to follow the best ways to eat healthy.
And in any case, you can never go wrong with a plate of Bolognese pasta!"
Pjanic will not go to Juventus!
Juventus has interrupted negotiations with Barcelona for the return of Miralem Pjanic to Turin, and to attempt the transfer in extremis of the Bosnian midfielder.
Barcelona's position is decisive, willing to sell the player only to a club ready to pay the entire salary of eight and a half million: a condition not considered acceptable by the Juventus club. Juventus new new cycle opens with three prospects of the transfer market: Kaio Jorge, Manuel Locatelli and Moise Kean, and to these are added a series of investments for the future between Under 23 at the nursery.
Last on the list in chronological order Mohamed Ihattaren, left-handed attacking midfielder born in 2002 of the Raiola team, fished by PSV and shot on loan to Sampdoria, where he will make his bones like Radu Dragusin. However, it must be said that the fans of the Italian club are not satisfied with what the Bianconera management has done, especially after the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United. But even after the home defeat suffered in the Italian Serie A against Empoli.
