Premier League: He’s 24 – Klopp hits back at Neville for Alexander-Arnold’s World Cup claim

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has responded to Manchester United legend Gary Neville over comments he made about defender Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Neville has warned that Alexander-Arnold could cost England the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Alexander-Arnold joined England manager Gareth Southgate’s squad for the 2022 World Cup on Thursday.

The right-back has helped Liverpool win the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup in recent years.

But while Alexander-Arnold is impressed by his offensive skills, he has faced some criticism over his defensive capabilities.

When asked about Neville’s criticism of Alexander-Arnold, Klopp told reporters in his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League match with Southampton this weekend: “I heard Gary Neville said something. [about Trent].

“But now he is 24 and has won quite a few finals, which are important matches where you have to defend against world-class players.

“He was always there, defending really well. I don’t know why this discussion was going on.”
