Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell and Reece James? Tottenham’s Matt Doherty and Sergio Reguilon? While some would fancy a number of up and coming fullback pairings to challenge Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson as the game’s preeminent duo, the chemistry and comedic rapport between the two remains unrivaled.
The Reds’ star men have consequently attempted to create more off-the-pitch content to satisfy the fans. Anointing themselves the second coming of famed comedy duo Ant & Dec, the two riff on a number of topics in the first episode of their ‘Wing Men’ IGTV show while on a mini “trophy parade” in lieu of an actual commemoration of last season’s title win.
Robertson reveals that Trent is considers the “tightest man in Liverpool” after the right back forced the Scotsman to fill up his gas tank for losing a game of rock-paper-scissors.
The “tour” stopped at the local lad’s childhood home, with Trent reminiscing on the magic of the parade 15 years ago following Liverpool’s miracle in Istanbul.
“When I was about six or seven, when they won the Champions League in 2005,” the 22-year old said. “This is the route that they took so it came literally down here.
“All our mates and everyone came to ours. There were people all on the walls, in the windows.”
On topic of the team’s worst dancer, Robbo was quick to out a surprise name for possessing an impressive range cringey dad moves.
“Most embarrassing dancer. He’s got glasses, he’s German and he’s called the boss.”
The tour ended at Anfield but not before a stop at the famous mural of Trent, the local son with the fairytale story.
Footballers are humans at the end of the day, with Robbo revealing how much the monument meant to his teammate.
“You should’ve seen him smile the first time we drove past here,” Robbo said. “Honestly, the bus erupted.”
