Liverpool news Rio Ferdinand lists four things Trent Alexander-Arnold must do next PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Liverpool superstar Trent Alexander-Arnold has struggled for consistency at times this season and former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has explained what he must do now
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Rio Ferdinand believes Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold must "reset and go back to basics" in order to find his form once more. The Reds right-back has struggled for consistency at times this season and made a mistake before Real Madrid's second goal in the Champions League during his latest performance. Still only 22, however, and having to contend with injuries, a lack of pre-season and Covid-19 has disrupted the star defender's progress and hindered his ability to hit the regular world-class levels he has throughout the majority of his career so far. And former Manchester United defender Ferdinand says Alexander-Arnold must learn from this season, outlining when he was at a similar stage in his own successful career. Must-read Liverpool FC news Jurgen Klopp's blunt Anfield admission Naby Keita at a crossroads Naby Keita sub explained Damien Duff's brutal verdict “Hopefully they’ll learn from this and I think we’ve all been there at those young stages of our careers," Ferdinand told BT Sport while looking back at Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Madrid. "Trent Alexander-Arnold, he’s going to be seeing things now, he had a great run, he’s under a bit of pressure now, it’s about learning. "I’ve been in the position when you make mistakes and you look back, these are elementary, fundamentals, that you should have locked down in your game because you’re playing at that level but sometimes you have to reset, look at it, go back to basics and simplify my game a bit, especially from the defending perspective. "Things will be alright, I’m sure things will turn around for him, but he’s got to see that, work it out and then go on." Meanwhile, former England manager Glen Hoddle and ex-Reds winger Joe Cole discussed on the programme what was going wrong for Alexander-Arnold.

“The problem is sometimes that you’re having to learn on the job and that’s difficult when results aren’t going your way," Hoddle said. "You can learn on the job when you’re winning and you’re a confident side and you enjoy it. "Unfortunately at the moment for Liverpool, with the different combinations they have, it’s not worked for him." And Cole added: "I think he’s missed Henderson massively, Trent. You underestimate the job Henderson does with his legs, he has the ability so Trent isn’t second guessing when he goes forward. "Now, he’s worried, and that split second of doubt puts him in an uncomfortable position and then the confidence goes. "Rio’s right, it’s mistakes that can be made - he’s young and he’s still an unbelievable talent, he’s had a great, great start to his career."
