Trent Alexander-Arnold “My brothers sacrificed their dream for mine” | The Players Tribune Global


— I think the satisfaction you get from knowing that you’ve got someone when you’re about to finish them off and you know that they can’t
get out of it, is unbeatable. Nice one, kid. Oh! Be patient with it, be patient with it. Nice one there, nice
one, nice one, nice one. Yeah, but I always come
out on top and you know it. When we were growing up we were, like, very, very competitive. If it weren’t, like, football and that, then we’d try and play any sort of game, whether it be on the PlayStation
or the Xbox or whatever, or even chess. We were just like a really normal family. I think once you’d got to know us then it was very, very football dominated. More than anything, it was literally, we played football all the time. Inside the house, outside the house, we’d roll up socks, make,
like, tinfoil balls, anything that we could
just to play football. Mum used to go crazy. I was always the one
that shared the dream, that helped our relationships massively. Just being in each others
personal space 24/7, so you have to get along and obviously there’s fights
and little spats and that. But, at the end of the day, it was always Mum that
made us make up, and be best friends, and that’s
what the three of us are. Obviously all three us
wanted to become footballers, that was our dream, we
played every day together. My brother had to sacrifice everything. I think maybe they realised at a young age that it was more realistic
for me and not for them. And maybe Mum and Dad did too. I think, at the time, you don’t
see and you don’t realise, but a lot of time they
weren’t able to play their matches on a Sunday, because I had to be at the
academy and play in my game. And Mum couldn’t take us both. Now you look back at it, you think it was unbelievable for such young people to sacrifice their dream
for mine at a young age. And be able to see the vision so clearly and wanting for me to be successful and to see my dream
come true, above theirs, is an incredible sacrifice. It’s unfair to ask anyone to do that but they done it willingly
and we’re obviously, we’re all really pleased
with how things have gone. And if, and whenever
they need maybe anything that I can help with then
it’s done in an instant, because I know what they
sacrificed for me in the past.

  1. Love that. So many footballers have gone through this. For all the criticism and debate surrounding them they're still humans with stories like this one.

  2. L13 he also from were I grew up, when I was drinking and getting smashed in larkhill park being a clown he was over the road playing football, unreal achievement

  3. British media, let this boy build on his successful career so far before all this attention gets to his head( not saying this is not a good video for his brothers). That's why they are many potential unfulfilled players like Walcott in England. How many interviews in one year. Will he be thinking of the next match, next season or next interview or publicity. He shoots a common sense corner u over hype it so much, bringing interview to him that week, exposing his secret to other rival countries that will use it against him during the next World Cup. U don't see this happen in Italy, Germany(Kroos at a young age), France(mbappe) and Spain( Asensio). That's why Sancho is getting better every year, away from the distracting media while Alli and the rest continues to become it's coming home potential players till their career ends. That's why pogba can't even play his football like he did in Italy. That's why Odoi and sane should hv moved to Germany cos England is not a good place for young talents. It's just like a sheep(young talents) in the midst of wolves(Brittish media). Trent is even lucky to win a champion league among his young compatriot cos he's got a German coach. Reis Nelson might be going back to Germany after this season, I hope not. Just look at Dier, played well in sporting now a ghost in his home country which should be opposite. Bravo to Trippier, dier should follow.

  4. i suggest you read the artical he wrote for player tribune even if you're not a Liverpool fan. he's so good at writing

  5. His brothers are great support – to become a footballer you need a committed family too

  6. legend in the making……without a doubt he's got the ability to be the best right back in the last 10 years

  7. For this day TAA is my fav footballer. U cant hate him! Such a great lad whos gonna be a legend. YNWA β™₯️

  8. TA-A is one of my favourite players: obviously a skilled footballer, and seems down-to-earth.
    This is a good a reminder that professional athletes often start training at a young age, and their families have to find ways to support them.
    What a cute family photo at the end!

  10. It's truly amazing. Imagine sacrificing your own dream for your siblings, it just takes a lot of guts and belief to do this and not many people would even think of doing such a thing. His family deserves to be praised. Trent Alexander Arnold will definitely be a legend one day. I know that he's already a Liverpool legend.
