Ex-Liverpool defender Enrique: Competition must be bought for Alexander-Arnold


Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique says they need to buy a new right-back.

Enrique insists Trent Alexander-Arnold's defending is no longer good enough.

The Spaniard told DAZN Bet: "Liverpool definitely need to go buy another right back because Trent Alexander-Arnold is the only player who can play in that position and it's important to have players challenging each other. Calvin Ramsey is injured and very young, Alexander-Arnold needs proper competition for the spot.

"But you can't talk poorly about the best fullback in the world from 2019-2021, Alexander-Arnold has not forgotten how to play football.

"He was possibly never a world-class defender but he is a world-class fullback, probably the best in the world, if not the top three. He's 23-years-old, won everything he can with Liverpool, it could be he's got comfortable and knows he'll play because there's no competition. Liverpool need to go out there and spend a bit of money of a player to give Alexander-Arnold that competition, like how Konstantinos Tsimikas gives Andy Robertson competition at left back."
