Liverpool youngster Adam Lewis shared his admiration for what Trent Alexander-Arnold had accomplished at the club before sharing he could replicate the first team regular’s success.
The promising 18-year-old left-back appeared on LFCTV on Thursday to reveal that he thought what Alexander-Arnold had accomplished at Anfield so far was unbelievable.
Lewis then added that Alexander-Arnold was personally an inspiration for him due to having played for the same Sunday league team and that the defender gave him belief that he could replicate the right-back’s rise to prominence.
“It’s unbelievable what he’s done in the space of two-years, playing in the Champions League final, been to a World Cup, fifty plus games with the first-team now so looking that, I think I can do that,” stated the teenager on LFCTV, seen in an preview clip on the channel’s official Twitter.
“Y’know cause I was obviously at the same Sunday league team with him and playing with him from a very young age so he’s an inspiration for me.”
It’s nice to see hear Lewis reflect on Alexander-Arnold’s achievements without a hint of jealousy or envy. The 18-year-old clearly sees the first teamer as an inspirational player he can model himself after in order to break into the Reds’ first-team in the near future. Lewis definitely appears to have the right tools and attributes to one day rise through the ranks as constantly good things are heard about his performances in the young system. The promising left-back has played eight times this season, seven times in the Premier League 2 and once in the UEFA Youth League, and has already racked up a noteworthy three assists in the process. Lewis particularly shone for the U-19s against Paris St Germain’s Under 19s in September as he caused several Reds fans to gush on Twitter about his display. The left-back appears to have the ability to whip dangerous crosses into the box and that will surely improve as he continues to learn from his experience.
