Alexander-Arnold: “It is a luxury to see Vinicius play, we have work as a team”

The defender of Liverpool Trent Alexander Arnold recognized that “it is a luxury to see the Brazilian play” Vinicius jr, with whom this Saturday he will have one of the most attractive duels in the Champions League final, but he warned that everything happens by doing “a job as a team”, while he did not hide that playing against Real Madrid “gives even more importance ” to the match.

“I’m really looking forward to facing all of Real Madrid. Playing against Real Madrid, you know you’re going to face top-class players in all positions on the pitch. Vinicius is a luxury to see him play, but we know that we have a job as a team”, Alexander-Arnold commented this Friday at his team’s official press conference.

For the side, “having the possibility of win” a second Champions League with only 23 years “is special”. “But also for everyone. There have been a lot of football legends who haven’t had these chances. We know we’re up against a top-class opponent and we’re going to have to play well to make it,” he admitted.

The international knows that this game has “different things”, especially because of everything that surrounds it in the previous days, but he made it clear that They are “very excited”. “We think that we deserve to be here and that it hasn’t been due to a lot of luck. It’s been a difficult road, it’s the last game of the season as a team and as a club and it’s special, it’s the game that everyone wants to play. It’s good to be here here, but winning it would be even better,” said Alexander-Arnold.

“We have played a lot with Manchester City and they have a different threat, also in a final of the Champions there’s another pressure, it’s not just a league game, it’s the most important of the season and the rival doesn’t matter, but playing against Real Madrid gives it even more importance. They are two great teams in European football that want to win titles every year,” added the Englishman.

Finally, he considered that they have “the experience” to face this duel and that they will not regret not having been able to win the Premier League. “We’ve played four competitions and we’ve reached the final in all of them. Now we think about the Champions League, what happened on Sunday was disappointing, but we can’t think of anything other than the Champions League final,” he said.
