Liverpool have conquered the world under Jürgen Klopp. In the past couple of years the Reds have been crowned champions of Europe, England and the earth. We relied heavily on our full backs on our way to glory and that hasn’t gone unnoticed. Sir Alex Ferguson has labeled Andy Robertson as an ‘unbelievable’ player.
In 2012 Andy Robertson was playing in front of small crowds at Queen’s Park.
Just under a decade later he was a European Cup winner.
The Scotsman was in the youth ranks at Celtic before he was let go in 2009.
The defender didn’t let the setback get to him and he worked doubly hard to get to where he belongs.
After impressing at Queen’s Park he joined Dundee United, spending just a year with the side before he was snapped up by Hull City.
No stranger to adversity, Robbo was relegated with the Tigers in 2017.
With Alberto Moreno failing to do the job at Anfield the Reds signing a left back seemed inevitable.
Though few anticipated Liverpool swooping for Andy Robertson, Michael Edwards snapping him up for an initial £8m.
Although he took some time to nail down his spot in the starting XI, when he did he never looked back.
The left back registered a sensational 23 assists across two seasons from 2018-2020.
Sir Alex Ferguson on Andy Robertson
Now captain of his country, the Reds’ defender has come in for high praise from a legend of the game.
Sir Alex Ferguson has been raving about Andy Robertson and fellow left back Kieran Tierney.
The ex-Manchester United was speaking as part of the Scotland’s Club Legacy project when he said:
“Their performance level has been very good, I have been impressed. I look at the midfield players and I think they are as good as anyone, players playing in England.
“[Kieran] Tierney has been fantastic at Arsenal, absolutely fantastic, Robertson the last two years at Liverpool has been unbelievable.”
What RTK has to say
These words will mean the world to Robbo.
Sir Alex Ferguson is a titanic figure in the sport, his words carry a lot of weight.
The ex-United boss is right as well, Robbo has been truly unbelievable in the past few seasons.
His work rate and durability are utterly astounding, we are lucky to have him.
