Liverpool right back Trent Alexander-Arnold has said that he feels like there is always something in the Anfield stadium.
Ahead of fans returning to stadiums in England , Arsenal legend Ian Wright interviewed the Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold to discuss how he feels like to play without fans in stadiums.
When he was asked about those Anfield nights He said, “I’m telling you there’s something in the stadium, like spiritual. It’s just something in the atmosphere, you can feel the history, you can feel [the force], yeah.
“ The Barca game was obviously amazing but that City game [Champions League in 2018], I’ve never felt like that.
“The only negative about those nights is you can’t speak to your centre back as you can’t even hear them. You’re screaming at the top of your lungs, and they can’t hear you! You’re trying to tell them. “Your shoulder, watch your shoulder” but they can’t hear you. That’s the only negative but it’s a positive really.
When he was asked about the influence of fans he said, “It’s difficult because you don’t realise how much fans influence game plans, like with momentum and the sounds you can hear… I miss the fans so much.
” It feels empty without them. Even though you know they’re watching at home and they’re all over the world tuning in, it’s not the same without them.
“Football’s not the same. Obviously times are hard and stuff like that but it’s the world we live in right now. I miss the route into the stadium, all the fans there, tens of thousands waiting to greet us every single game. No matter what there’s at least ten thousand fans just waiting to watch the bus come into the stadium, it’s crazy.
