Alexander-Arnold reveals the Liverpool star who mentored him during breakthrough

Alexander-Arnold reveals the Liverpool star who mentored him during breakthrough

Liverpool and England star Trent Alexander-Arnold has made a superb gesture to a fan.

Alexander-Arnold offered to sort the young fan out with a fresh England shirt, with name and number printed on the back, out of his own pocket. It comes when Alexander-Arnold considers the disappointment of losing that Champions League final in Kiev to Real Madrid and the agony of being so close - in touching distance, literally - to the trophy.

Neither Milner nor England boss Gareth Southgate appeared to seriously entertain the idea, but Alexander-Arnold credits his Anfield colleague with aiding his rapid rise from youth team to full global.

"James has taught me a lot".

The 19-year-old, who studies journalism at Liverpool John Moores University, added he might just go with "Trent" instead.

"It's important to have those players around you".

"He's been a huge help to me this season".

Alexander-Arnold's post has now had thousands of retweets and likes. And that is a full week before England's first match of the final against Tunisia.

"That's one of the things that has really hit home for me, just to play how I play and not change for anyone".

Someone clearly flagged this tweet up to him, and the Liverpool youngster decided to make a small, but lovely gesture.
