Trent Alexander-Arnold spoke to the media in the pre-match conference ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

The right-back pointed out, this duel won’t decide the final since teamwork will be required.

“When you play against Real Madrid, you expect to come up against world-class players and there will be individual battles all across the pitch,” Trent Alexander-Arnold said in a Friday press conference at the Stade de France ahead of Champions League final.

“We’ve got a gameplan around how we’re going to deal with all the threats they pose.

“Vinicius is an outstanding player and he’s shown that especially this season with his goals and assists and his threat. He’s an exciting player to watch.

“We’ve got our job to do as individuals, as a collective and as a group.

“But, it’s a team game and the team wins at the end of the day.”

The right-back was also asked about Liverpool’s mood, given that they come into this game just one week after losing the Premier League title race on the final day.

“I think we’ve put Sunday behind us and we have the experience this season to focus on what’s next,” he said.

“We’ve gone all the way in all competitions, so we forget about other competitions when we need to and focus on the one we’re in next.

“We’ve gone all the way in all competitions, so we forget about other competitions when we need to and focus on the one we’re in next.

“It was hard to take at the time but it’s behind us now.

“I think we embrace these big game occasions. These are the ones in your mind when you’re working hard behind the scenes.

“To even be in with a chance of a second Champions League title at this age is special for me. There have been many legends of the game who haven’t had this opportunity.

“It’s a privilege but we have a world-class opponent in front of us.”
