Trent Alexander-Arnold says Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and England manager Gareth Southgate have a lot of “the same ideas”.
The full-back has become a mainstay at both club and international level, producing 13 assists in the Premier League last season from defence as Liverpool pushed Manchester City close for the title.
And, despite admitting they have very different personalities, Alexander-Arnold claims Klopp and Southgate have more in common than meets the eye.
“Yeah, they’re very different,” Alexander-Arnold told The Athletic. “You can see that with how they are on the touchline and it’s the same behind the scenes. Southgate is a lot more laid back, whereas Klopp is a lot more animated and in the forefront in training, getting heavily involved.
“But both managers have the same ideas in terms of wanting to win and the hunger to get better and wanting to improve.”
Alexander-Arnold added: “You want to play well for them, you want to repay their trust. You want to buy into the ideas and you feel that if everyone does that then we’ll be successful as a team.
“We’ve already had success with my club and I feel like we’re on the way to being successful as a country too.”
