‘I would rather retire than play for Manchester United’: Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has emphatically said he would rather retire than play for Manchester United.

Liverpool and Manchester United are the most successful clubs in England. The two have been fighting for bragging rights for decades and the rivalry between them runs deep.

Everyone at Liverpool and Manchester United is aware of what the North West Derby is all about. However, there are a lot more sentiments around the rivalry for local players at both clubs.

Red Devils forward Marcus Rashford hails from Manchester, while Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones is from Merseyside. Alexander-Arnold is another Liverpudlian who has gone on to establish himself as a key player for the Reds.

Whether you are a local lad or not, playing for Manchester United after leaving Liverpool and vice-versa is considered unforgivable by the fans of both teams and Alexander-Arnold is well aware of it. Asked whether he would retire or play for the Red Devils, the 23-year-old told Sky Sports:

“Right now, [I would] retire, to be honest, could not do that [join Manchester United].”
Alexander-Arnold also revealed that he prefers playing Manchester United over featuring in the Merseyside Derby against Everton. He said:

“I mean Manchester United is a bigger game historically. I’d say Manchester United, more people watch it.”
Alexander-Arnold helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to a thumping 5-0 victory over Manchester United in October. He will look to do the same when the Red Devils visit Anfield in the Premier League in March.
