Trent Alexander-Arnold has refused to be drawn into continuing the anti-Sergio Ramos vibe that has rumbled on since Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat.
The 19-year-old Reds’ defender, who was an unused substitute during England’s 2-1 defeat by Spain last night, a match in which Ramos was continually booed, says he still respects Ramos as a player despite his controversial actions back in May.
Many Liverpool fans won’t ease off on the personal attacks of Ramos but Alexander-Arnold has opted to speak about the Real Madrid defender in a more positive light.
The Liverpool man said: “You have got to respect Ramos, even if he was the enemy in the Champions League final.
“Everyone has their way of doing things but he has shown that he is a winner and has been for ten years. What he has done has worked for him and his team.
“To win three Champions Leagues in a row takes some doing. You don’t do that with just average players.
“He has shown why he is probably the best, most consistent centre-back in the world.”
