JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Liverpool has awarded their academy graduate star Trent Alexander-Arnold with a long-term contract after an agreement was reached, the English club announced on Friday (07/30/2021).

The club did not disclose details of Alexander-Arnold's new contract, but according to British media reports, the 22-year-old defender is tied until 2025 at Anfield.

"I'm honored to be given the opportunity and to accept the club's trust in this contract extension. It is definitely a decision that doesn't need to be considered," Alexander-Arnold said, as quoted by Liverpool's official website.

After making his senior team debut in the Premier League Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur in October 2016, Alexander-Arnold slowly rose to fame and managed to win over Jurgen Klopp as the first choice at right-back.

In all, he has made 179 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool, and contributed 10 goals in his quest to help the Reds win the Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup, and UEFA Super Cup.

"I don't think about it much, but I feel like I've achieved things and dreams that I never thought possible before," Alexander-Arnold said.

"Every day I live that dream. To represent the club and to be among players, manager, and coaches with a world-class reputation is an honor for me. I am really lucky to be in this position," he concluded, as reported by Antara.
