Liverpool's millionaire fullback Alexander-Arnold still hoovers at family home

Liverpool's millionaire fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold admits living at home means he still has to do house-hold chores.

The teenage defender has been on a meteoric rise that has seen him emerge from the Anfield youth system to play in a ­Champions League Final and at the World Cup in the space of 12 breathtaking months.

But he revealed: “I still live with my mum and dad.

“And, yeah, I still have to do my chores at home.

“I'm not very good with the dishes, so I do the ­hoovering. I help around the place. I'm not the best, but I try to do my bit. My parents have always pushed me about how important it is to keep working hard, whether it's football or doing your best at school.

“My mum and dad always knew my dream was to be a footballer, but they warned me that it's only one or two per cent who are lucky enough to see that come true. They made sure I always had a back-up plan. I passed all my GSCEs and would probably have gone to university if I hadn't signed for Liverpool."
