Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has been labelled as an "unbelievable" manager by full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The right-back, who broke into the Merseyside club’s starting XI back in 2016, has continued to play an integral role under the German and has developed into one of Europe’s best right-backs over the past three and a half seasons.

While it remains to be seen when the 2019-20 campaign will be continued, amid the COVID-19 chaos, Alexander-Arnold hailed his boss Klopp - who has taken Liverpool to within two wins of their first Premier League title.

"Unbelievable," Alexander-Arnold told GQ when asked about Klopp. "Just everything about him in every way. His man management, as a person, as a manager. Just unbelievable."

When quizzed if the former Borussia Dortmund boss was the same off-camera as on it, Alexander-Arnold replied: "He's the same person, because I feel as though in those interviews, when you see him on the camera, you can see that he's a loving person.

"You can see that he's someone who cares about the people around him. He cares about his family, he cares about his players, he cares about his staff.

"He treats everyone as equals. He treats the captain the same as he would a young player. People probably have a conception of him as maybe being very emotional, heart on the sleeve.

"Which he is to an extent, but he knows how to control it in ways that are beneficial to everyone around him. He knows what needs to be said and what tone it needs to be said in, at the right time."

Alexander-Arnold also confirmed he is not looking to seal a move away from Anfield.

"Yeah, I can imagine that," he said when asked if he could see out his entire career at Liverpool.

"[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?"
