Watch: Rio Ferdinand compares LFC’s Trent Alexander-Arnold to Cafu


Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold has become one of the best right-backs in the world – and Rio Ferdinand is clearly a massive fan. 

Alexander-Arnold has had another an outstanding campaign with the runaway Premier League leaders, producing 12 top-flight assists in 29 games.

Despite being a Manchester United legend, Ferdinand couldn’t help but lax lyrical about the Liverpool defender during a Q&A session with his Instagram followers.

He was particularly impressed with the 21-year-old’s first-half display against Atletico Madrid at Anfield, likening his performance to that of Brazilian legend Cafu.
