Liverpool fullback Alexander-Arnold: Klopp always paid attention to academy

Liverpool fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold says manager Jurgen Klopp has always paid attention to the club's academy talent.

Klopp has now spent four years at Anfield and Alexander-Arnold admits his interest in promoting young players was immediately obvious.

"Within his first few weeks he was down at the academy watching the young lads, and that almost gave us a bit more faith and gave a statement to the club that he is going to use young players and give us those chances," he said.

"He's shown over the four-year period that he has given those young players their chances and given them opportunities and obviously I'm one of the youngsters that have been given them.

"A massive thanks to him, and hopefully there will be four more years of success."
