Former Premier League manager, Sam Allardyce, has weighed in on Trent Alexander-Arnold’s recent comments regarding Manchester City’s success.

Alexander-Arnold suggested that the trophies Liverpool has won hold more significance for their fans compared to City’s trophies due to financial reasons.

Allardyce expressed his opinion on the matter, stating that the dig at City’s spending was unnecessary.

Allardyce made these remarks on the podcast “No Tippy Tappy Football,” emphasizing that while Alexander-Arnold values the trophies won with Liverpool, City players may have a different perspective.

He said: “I think that’s a little bit unnecessary really, a bit of a dig about City’s spending. It’s not like Liverpool have been paupers and not spent anything over the years.

“I understand that the trophies Trent Alexander-Arnold has won mean more to him in the Liverpool team but that’s a pretty obvious thing to say, of course they do. But the Manchester City players will flip that and say the complete opposite.

“Just unnecessary as much as anything. It’s been a great rivalry, let’s just leave it at that can’t we.”

Erling Haaland also responded to Alexander-Arnold’s comments, pointing out that the Liverpool star has not experienced winning a Treble.

This exchange raises questions about the correlation between a club’s financial standing and the significance of trophy wins to its supporters.

It remains unclear whether Alexander-Arnold fully understands City’s financial situation and the appreciation of their fans for their recent trophy successes.

In conclusion, Allardyce and others have reacted to Alexander-Arnold’s remarks, highlighting differing perspectives on the value of trophies based on financial considerations.

The ongoing rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester City continues to spark debate and controversy, with players and pundits weighing in on the significance of trophy wins to fans.
