Liverpool fans are very happy with their left-back. They call him “The bargain of the last season”, as the “bargain” of this current season is the Swiss midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri. The Reds paid more or less 8 million pounds for the Scottish left-back, who was playing for the relegated side of Hull City, back in 2016. Andrew was, alongside of Virgil van Dijk, one of the responsible to bring Liverpool to the European Cup – UEFA Champions League – Final versus Real Madrid – in which they would win it, but due to the Karius factor, they ended up losing it.
And thanks to the awesome performances, Liverpool announced on Thursday the contract renewal of left-back Andy Robertson, 24. The English club has not pointed out the period of the new compromise, but the English press reports that it will be valid for five years. He has been brought to Anfield by Jurgen Klopp in 2017, and to date have been 56 games, many assists, a goal, and above all… That consistency when defending that classify him as World Class.
“As soon as the club approached me, it was an obvious choice. I want to stay here, so when they put an offer on the table, it was signed quickly, “Robertson said in an interview with the club’s official website.
The Scotsman has made it clear that staying in Liverpool means playing many important titles, something the fans have been waiting for quite some time in Anfield Road:
– I hope to help get more trophies for this club and help in that direction, because the fans demand it, and the club demands it. So that’s what we want to give.
At least, in my opinion, he is the best left-back playing right now, even above Marcelo. Will he be able to keep up this consistency? We’ll see with the time.
