Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, was hailed as the best England right-back in the past generation, and while his void is yet to be totally filled, there are a huge number of promising right-backs that can overshadow the veteran right-back’s accomplishments.

Gary Neville himself, has claimed that Liverpool star, Trent Alexander-Arnold, can become the best English right-back ever.

Gary Neville revealed his thoughts via a Twitter Q&A, as he said when asked his thoughts on Trent Alexander-Arnold: “Fantastic player . If he can keep improving his positional work / body shape when the ball is on the opposite side and central he will be the best English Right back ever.

At just 22, Alexander-Arnold has been a mainstay in the Liverpool team for some years now, and one can only imagine how far he can go.

Chelsea right-back Reece James is being hailed as a top act and one with a big future, but it’ll take massive improvement from the 21-year-old Chelsea defender to beat Trent Alexander-Arnold.
