Every football lover knows the English professional footballer Trent Alexander-Arnold, a product of the Liverpool Academy, who is currently playing as a legal defender for the first division club Liverpool. In his formative years, the budding football star already played for his country’s national team (England) at all youth levels from U-16 to U-19, and on 25 October 2016, he played his first official senior team match for Liverpool.
Who is Trent Alexander-Arnold?
The famous footballer Trent Alexander-Arnold was born on 7 October 1998 in the West Derby in Liverpool. He is an English citizen and of white descent. The footballer attended the local primary school in West Derby, Liverpool, known as St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School. During his years at St Matthew’s School, he loved to play football and when he turned six, his school was invited to a community summer camp held in Liverpool. Trent was fortunate to be noticed by then Academy coach Ian Barrigan and, in the long run, was offered the chance to join the club’s academy, which was a great achievement.
The budding football star made his way to a training session, which he attended two or sometimes three times a week. He was so successful that, under the supervision of coach Pepijn Lijnders, he was promoted to captain of the club at both under-16 and under-18 levels. His hard work and dedication to the academy paid off when Steven Gerrard, former captain of Liverpool, tipped him off in his autobiography that he was considered to have a bright future at the club. Club manager Brendan Rodgers chose Trent Alexander-Arnold in the first squad for the team’s final pre-season friendly against Swindon Town ahead of the 2015-2016 season, and on 25 October 2016, he played his first official senior international for Liverpool, signing a long-term contract with the top-flight club on 8 November 2016.
How Tall is He?
The English footballer stands at a height of 1.79m and has a corresponding body weight of 69kg or 152lb. Details of his other body measurements are not currently available to the public.
What Does He Do Outside Football?
In addition to playing football, the football star is also involved with the Liverpool-based charity An Hour for Others, where he volunteers as an ambassador. An Hour for Others is a well-known charity whose main mission is to provide the underprivileged in society with basic goods such as food, toys, and anything that can lighten their load. It even goes so far as to give science lessons to those who may need them. Records show that as a teenager, the young footballer was introduced to the charity by his mother. He and his team-mate Kris Owens of the Liverpool Academy pledged to support the initiative if any of them ever became professional footballers. According to Trent, the charity was founded by his best friend’s aunt and both he and his best friend were asked to help out from time to time.
For his part, Trent sees philanthropy as something he has always wanted to do, and An Hour for Others has given him a much-needed opportunity to influence the public at a high level. He also said that he took the opportunity to raise people’s awareness of the organization and the good that is happening in society as opposed to the bad. He constantly visits the hospital to encourage people. He also participates in the breast cancer awareness campaign by wearing pink boots on breast cancer awareness day.
