Owen Beck is looking forward to working with Andy Robertson this summer. The Scot is finally back among the Liverpool squad.
Owen Beck says he ‘can’t wait’ for Andy Robertson to be training with the Liverpool team. This comes as Robertson finally linked back up with the squad on Friday.
The 27-year-old got an extended break after his Euro 2020 duties with Scotland and only now gets started for next season. He trained on Friday, though not with the players who faced Mainz.
Beck was one of those players and he had his moment in the game. It was Beck’s cross that led to Mainz’s own goal, handing Liverpool the win.
While it wasn’t quite a match-winner, the teenager undoubtedly made an impact. Now his attention turns to working with Robertson on a daily basis.
“I can’t wait for [Robertson] to start training and I can take a few things out of his game and put them into mine,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“And even with Kostas [Tsimikas] now – I’m learning a lot from Kostas.”

This is one of the major advantages of having elite players in your squad. Someone like Beck – a teenager still making his way in the game – gets to learn from the world’s best.
Robertson is, pretty unquestionably, the world’s best left-back. Having Beck training alongside him every day as an equal is schooling that few can match.
So no wonder he’s excited – this is a fantastic experience for him.
Beck has trained with Robertson before, of course. Liverpool frequently use youth prospects in first-team training. This is slightly different, however, as the pre-season squad is one unit.
Beck gets to spend every day working with Robertson, seeing exactly how he does things, and then putting that into practice with other elite players.
Hopefully, he comes out of the other side a better player.
