Klopp's stamp of approval? Welcome Andy! :well done:Jürgen Klopp has paid tribute to the 'incredible personal journey' undertaken by Andy Robertson prior to sealing his move to Liverpool today:
"For Andrew this is another big step on what has been a quite incredible personal journey in a very short space of time,"
“I love his story; where he has come from professionally to reach this point.
"When you speak to him it is clear why he makes his progress. He has a burning love for playing football - he really loves the game.
"His attitude is outstanding - absolutely outstanding. His talent and skills - also very, very good.
"He has experience of this competition, the Premier League, and he has the mentality and quality to get even better.
"I know our environment will benefit him and help him push himself even more than he has already. This is a player who does not limit his ambition, I think."
"This addition gives us fantastic competition in the left full-back position now,"
"Obviously, James Milner did very well for us last season there and can play most positions on the football pitch. Alberto Moreno looks really good in pre-season and we have Jon Flanagan back, who can play left or right full-back.
"This signing strengthens us at full-back and I'm really pleased about this."
If you've noticed, Milner isn't the on converted left back as Rose was a winger, Blind a defensive mid, Alonso also a winger and of course Milner who was supposed to be a central midfielder lolWelcome Andy! Good luck to you.
He doesn't even have to be world class to be one of the better left backs in the upper half of the table.
City- at the moment no one, but assume Mendy
Liverpool- Milner and now Robertson
Arsenal- Monreal and Gibbs
United- Shaw or Blind
Every one of those players listed above are decent players,!but it's not a level that I'd consider unattainable for Robertson. I look forward to seeing him play.
You do realize left handed and left footed ness are completely unrelated right? I'm left handed and as rightfooted as it gets. I know left footed people who are right handed as well.The lean is on his Left Arm, He signed the contract with his Left Hand, looks like we have another left footer.
Give it some.
