Premier League had already announced the nominees for the Tag Heuer Young Player of the 2019-20 Season.
Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold had a great season, but Manchester United’s trio of Greenwood, Martial and Rashford and Chelsea duo Mount and Pulisic were also in the race. The outsiders who could probably cause an upset to the big names were Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and United’s on-loan goalkeeper at Sheffield United, Dean Henderson.
Premier League has now officially announced the winner of the Young Player of the Season award and it is none other than Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Alexander-Arnold played a massive role as Liverpool lifted the Premier League trophy for the first time in 30 years. He played in all of the 38 Premier League matches. He provided a record 13 assists and in the process broke his own record for assists by a defender in a single Premier League season. He also scored four goals and showed that he is one of the best emerging talents in world football right now.
The 21-year old is proud for receiving the award. He wants to play his whole career in Liverpool.
Alexander-Arnold said: “[Playing abroad] is not something I’ve ever really thought about. I’ve always loved Liverpool. I’ve always supported them. I’ve always played for them.”
“So, I’ve never had that reason to think about it. Yeah, still now, I wouldn’t sit there in my room and daydream about playing somewhere else. Right now, I’m a Liverpool player. I love the club more than anything. I love everything about it. I love the fans, the people. I love the city. So, no, why would I think about that?”
Trent Alexander-Arnold is a Liverpool youth academy product. They have probably got one of the best players in the years to come.
