Andy Robertson talked about his future this week after reaching five years with Liverpool. The Scot will go down as an all-time great.
Yesterday marked a milestone for Andy Robertson – exactly five years since he arrived at Liverpool from Hull City. The Reds paid around £10m to get the Scot, sending midfielder Kevin Stewart the other way.
And what a deal it’s been. Robertson has been a revelation over the last five years, winning awards and playing as arguably the world’s best left-back. We certainly wouldn’t consider swapping him for anyone.
Of course, Robertson’s arrival coincided with Liverpool’s rise up the top of European football. His debut season saw him start a Champions League final and he’d pick up both Big Ears and the Premier League title over the next two.
So five years into his Anfield career, how is Robertson feeling? And what are his plans for the future.
Andy Robertson on his future
“Hopefully, many more years to come,” he told LFCTV. “Five years has flown by – it feels like yesterday that I was signing. It’s crazy that that time’s passed. I’m a wee bit older, wiser now – certainly look a bit older.
“It’s amazing playing for this club and I don’t want it to end. I want it to continue for as many years as it can but five years is incredible and I look forward to the next five.”
Five years at least. Robertson is the kind of player you keep around for as long as possible – a relentless worker who will deliver the minimum requirements every week.
Now 28, Robertson has at least four or five years left in him at the very top level. We can only hope he spends all of them with Liverpool – and, hopefully, more. The Scot will go down as the Reds’ greatest ever left-back, after all, and we’d like to see him retire at Anfield.
