Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has been trending on social media in the last 24 hours. The 21-year-old recently celebrated reaching one million followers on Twitter and decided to interact with fans with a questionnaire titled #AskTrent.
The Reds right-back is currently enjoying his winter break and answered a series of questions via Twitter. One question, in particular, got fans talking as it could be misinterpreted as a snub towards Messi and Ronaldo.
One fan asked whether he would prefer to play with Barcelona’s superstar Messi or Juventus goal record-setter Ronaldo.
To fans surprise, Alexander-Arnold snubbed both players in naming Henderson instead.
One asked: “#AskTrent would you rather play with Messi or Ronaldo?”
He simply responded: “Hendo #AskTrent”.
Many fans were quick to call him out and insist Trent was merely envious of the two megastars. Trent has been in great form this season and very instrumental in helping Liverpool secure the top position of the Premier League table this season.
With two goals and 12 assists in all competitions, the England international is expected to be back in action on Saturday when Liverpool travel to Norwich. Saturday’s game will see Liverpool edge a step closer to securing the Premier League title with just six games left.
Meanwhile, former Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert has showered praises onto Henderson for the impact he is having for Klopp’s squad.
“Brilliant, a lovely lad. I loved Hendo. A great professional,” Lambert told the club’s website.
“I’ve always been a big admirer of Jordan. When I first saw him technically superb, mentally superb and physically superb. It was always going to be a little bit difficult taking over the reins from Stevie G. I thought he handled it brilliantly; he just kept his head down, came through it better, stronger and more determined. To see him lift the European Cup made me a little bit emotional. Seeing Adz [Adam Lallana] go over and hug him, it was a bit emotional because I know where he’s been.”
Liverpool is hoping to win the Premier League title this season for the first time in 30 years, and for the first time since the current top flight’s inception in 1992. The players are reportedly said to receive a bonus of over £4million with the manager Jurgen Klopp also set to be rewarded. The Reds are leading the Premier League table with 22 points after just 25 matches
