Brazil's World Cup-winning captain Cafu: Liverpool fullback Alexander-Arnold just like me
Brazil's World Cup-winning captain Cafu has described Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold as "one of the best right-backs in the world" and says the Englishman's style of play reminds him of his own.
Alexander-Arnold, 23, has had another stellar season with the Reds as they remain in the hunt for four trophies.
Liverpool have won two domestic cups so far and are in contention to claim the Premier League and Champions League.
Cafu said Alexander-Arnold's progress since his debut has been "amazing".
Cafu, who spent most of his career in Serie A with Roma and AC Milan, told BBC Sport: "I have been following Alexander-Arnold and the campaign he has had at Liverpool. His progress over the last few years has been amazing and for sure is one of the best right-backs in the world.
"He is young, strong and has developed hugely considering his age. He also has a lot of experience and I see a lot of similarities between him and myself.
"We both had a will and commitment to attack, to go forward and have the boldness to shoot and to put the crosses in. The diagonal movements he makes on the pitch are also similar to what I was making as a player."
