Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson was seen embracing Jurgen Klopp before he came on as a substitute against Chelsea tonight.
After a dismal display against Manchester City on Saturday, the 29-year-old dropped to the bench at Stamford Bridge, with Kostas Tsimikas taking his place.
However, the Scotsman readied to enter the field in the 66th minute, after a poor display from the ‘Greek scouser’.
It was here, after his omission from the starting line-up, when Sky Sports journalist Gary Cotterill noticed a heart-warming moment from Robertson.
“There was a big hug from Andy Robertson for Klopp before he came on,” said Cotterill, writing for Sky Sports’ live commentary feed.
“No hard feelings for being dropped then.”
Robertson in good spirits with Klopp
Despite an underwhelming performance from Robertson against City, he has shown time and time again that he is Liverpool’s best option at left-back.
Since arriving at Anfield in 2017, the Scotland captain has impressively amassed 257 appearances for the club.
Under Klopp’s guidance, he has become a powerhouse at full-back, bombing up and down the wing as the Reds look to exploit space down the flanks.
Robertson would admit himself that he hasn’t been at his best this season, but who has in a Liverpool shirt?
Although Tsimikas is a strong back-up option to have, it’s clear the 29-year-old is still the better player.
He may drift off every so often, but he can still be considered one of the best left-backs in the Premier League.
