Liverpool fullback Alexander-Arnold: I thank Cafu for massive praise

Liverpool fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold isn't getting carried away with comments made by World Cup winner Marcos Cafu.

Alexander-Arnold has been tipped to claim the Ballon d'Or by the legendary Cafu.

He said: “Obviously massive praise from a legend of the game, which is something that I'm really thankful for and I have to give thanks to him for those words.

“I try and be the best player I can be. It's a team game so it's about the players I have around me in training, the manager, the support I have around me that enables me to be as good as I can be.

“That's the focus for me, taking it a game at a time, accolades may or may not come in the future.

“It doesn't really faze me as much as maybe it does other players, for me it's about winning the team trophies."
