Sharing Is Caring

Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold was left gutted as he was injured during England’s pre-Euro 2020 friendly against Austria to miss the tournament – but he has keeping busy with a new hairstyle

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has unveiled a radical new braided haircut as he returns to fitness.

The Englishman was left gutted as he was forced out of his country’s Euro 2020 campaign, picking up a thigh injury in the closing stages of the 1-0 win against Austria earlier this month.

Watching the Three Lions reach the round-of-16 for a clash against old rivals Germany, the 22-year-old is now focussed on getting fit for the start of the Reds’ 2021/22 season.


And he has been keeping busy by donning a new braided hairstyle while working on his recovery.


Alexander-Arnold poses for the camera in a holiday home with his hair twisted into several large pieces, almost copying the style of Tottenham star Dele Alli.

Wearing black training gear, the full-back takes on some light exercises next to a swimming pool to get his thigh back to work.

Accompanying the snaps, the 22-year-old simply writes on his Instagram page: “Road to recovery.”


Alexander-Arnold suffered a tough season at Anfield, struggling with a calf injury in November while also making some match-defining errors.

And Gareth Southgate was disappointed to lose the right-back for Euro 2020 – but was optimistic about a quick return.

He said after the Austria win: “The one thing I was pleased about is that immediately after the game, I didn’t like the look of the injury.

“At least it sounds as though Trent should be fine for pre-season and for next season.

“So that is a small – very small – positive in the situation.

“Of course, he was very upset, bitterly disappointed. In those moments everybody is thinking about him.

“It’s heartbreaking, really, for any player to get to the eve of a major tournament, be named in the squad, and then miss out through injury.

“You know how rare these opportunities are – even though he’s a young player who’s going to have those opportunities again.


“It’s a really difficult moment for him especially. It’s a big disappointment for us of course, as well.

“But you can’t help but first and foremost feel for Trent in this situation.”
