Liverpool: Fans rebuke Garth Crooks’ Trent Alexander-Arnold claim
Dec. 02, 2019
In a bizarre take in his BBC Sport Team of the Weak column, Gareth Crooks has both praised Trent Alexander-Arnold and criticised Liverpool supporters at the same time.
Having provided both assists for Virgil van Dijk’s brace against Brighton, Crooks was left raving over Alexander-Arnold’s performance on the day.
However, the same cannot be said when it came to Liverpool’s support, with the former Tottenham man questioning why fans are not giving the 21-year-old full-back more plaudits.
“I just wish Liverpool fans would chant his name more. Even with a name like Trent Alexander-Arnold, it can’t be that difficult,” Crooks wrote in his BBC Sport column.
In a team boasting superstars such as Van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, perhaps it may feel like to some that Alexander-Arnold does go under the radar somewhat.
But with Jurgen Klopp’s men top of the Premier League table and in with a real chance of winning the title, who cares about individual recognition?
Everyone is pulling together, evident from Liverpool’s league position, and that is surely the only thing that matters as the Reds chase down their first Premier League crown.
Whatever the case, some Liverpool fans are refusing to overlook Crooks’ comments, taking the 61-year-old to task over it on Twitter…
