Speaking on his new contract, the 22 year-old described himself as “honoured” to have been rewarded a fur-year deal and added that signing the extension was “a no-brainer” for him in terms of his future.
Alexander-Arnold also spoke of the “amazing” stability that this contract offered him, commenting: “The state the club is in and where I’m at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I’m here longer is always a good thing.”
The right-back also praised the club’s staff for their trust in him, adding: “To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling.”
Since making his senior debut in Autumn 2016, Alexander-Arnold has gone on to help Liverpool lift Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup titles and has made 13 international appearances for England.
Reflecting on his progress so far, Alexander admitted that he does “not too often” think about his success and the reality that he has “achieved so many dreams” of his that he “never actually thought” he would of done.
Paying tribute to his teammates and manager – Jurgen Klopp, Alexander-Arnold added: “Being able to represent the club and to be in and around names and players, and obviously managers and staff, that are world class every day is a privilege for me and I’m very fortunate to be in the position I am.”
Alexander-Arnold however has iterated that the priority for this season is to win trophies, saying: “We have our sights set on trophies, that’s our aim. It’s no longer top four or doing well, Europe and things like that, getting to quarters and semis.
“We want to be in a title run coming into May, we want to be in the Champions League final, we want to be in the domestic cup finals. We want to go as far as we can. I think this season we’ll be fighting on all fronts to win as many trophies as we can.”
Last season though saw the Reds struggle with injuries and scrape a third-placed league finish, yet Alexander-Arnold believes that difficult campaign “will motivate us to try and get our hands on some more silverware.”
