“Growing up, I remember looking at Manchester United and thinking what it would be like to be going for league titles every year and Champions League trophies every year,” said Trent Alexander-Arnold in an interview quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
“To be able to do that now and be involved in it is something we can’t take for granted. I’ll use Manchester United as an example again.
“Now, they’re probably thinking; ‘We shouldn’t have taken that sustained period of success for granted because now it seems like we’re far away from it’.
“For us fans and players, we can’t get complacent and just get used to it. We have to really still enjoy it and keep our expectations where they need to be.”
The Liverpool defender continued: “We’ve got to enjoy the game for as long as we can, because it won’t last forever. Sadly, at some point, everyone’s going to leave the club and it’ll be a lot different. Who knows when that will be?
“Football clubs change and evolve and managers can bring new players in. So, we’ve got to enjoy it as much as we can right now.”
Liverpool have missed out on winning the Premier League this term but are still in line to win the Champions League.
Trent is not wrong – complacency in football has led to the downfall of several big European giants.
Liverpool should know it best themselves, considering they have won just one Premier League title in 32 years.
