Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold has revealed Barcelona are his “favourite other team”.
Alexander-Arnold has been a revelation under Jurgen Klopp, who has helped the 21-year-old develop into one of Europe’s best right-backs.
And despite last year’s memorable comeback against Barcelona, the England international insists he has a soft spot for the Blaugrana.

“I’d say my favourite other team would be Barça. I feel as though they’ve got kind of the same values and beliefs as Liverpool,” Alexander-Arnold told GQ magazine.
“[In Liverpool], Everyone’s got the same beliefs, the same drive to succeed, the same hard-work ethic, the tenacity.
“The passion in what they believe in is a massive thing in this city.”
With the coronavirus pandemic forcing football to come to a standstill, Alexander-Arnold will have to wait a little longer for his first Premier League title.
But Reds fans will be comforted knowing he plans on winning several titles at Anfield given he is yet to even imagine what it would be like to play in Spain.
“It’s not something I’ve ever thought about. I’ve always loved Liverpool,” he adds.
“I’ve always supported them. I’ve always played for them. So, yeah, still now, I wouldn’t sit there in my room and daydream about playing somewhere else.”
