Trent Alexander-Arnold can be 'England's Cafu' claims Liverpool assistant manager

Liverpool assistant Pepijn Lijnders has insisted there is 'no limit' to Trent Alexander-Arnold's game, hinting that the England national team should alter their approach to better suit his needs.

The Reds' right-back has been a creative monster over the past few seasons, shattering assist records under Jurgen Klopp, but his role on the international scene has been significantly smaller and he has not always seen regular minutes.

With the World Cup only a few months away, Lijnders sent a subtle message to England boss Gareth Southgate to encourage him to abandon his cautious approach in favour of letting Alexander-Arnold run riot.

“It is only my opinion but if you see the game in an attacking way, he gave that position such a creative boost over the last few years. True or not? Like Cafu did in the past,” Lijnders said.

“For me there are no limits and if you see the game in a certain way then, for sure [Alexander-Arnold will impress at the World Cup]. But you can see the game in many different ways.”
