World Cup winner Cafu: Liverpool fullback Alexander-Arnold has Ballon d'Or potential

Brazil World Cup winner Marcos Cafu has again heaped praise on Liverpool fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The retired former AC Milan and Roma star is a big fan of his fellow right-back, having watched closely as Alexander-Arnold has shot to prominence at Anfield.

"He's a sensational player, a rare talent," Cafu told FIFA.com. "If he keeps playing the way he has been he will be regarded as one of the best players in the world. He has the potential to win [The Best FIFA Men's Player] award.

"He's technically brilliant, he has so much quality. He has a Brazilian style of play. I love watching him play.

"And playing in such a great team will help him grow."
