Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson has opened up on his time as a professional footballer.
The Scotland international revealed that he can't quite believe how his career has played out.
Before Robertson signed with Liverpool for a transfer fee of £8.10 million back in July 2017, he was a bit of an unknown quantity.
Now, he is regarded as one of the best full-backs in the world. Therefore, we weren't remotely surprised to read that Robertson is delighted with how his life has panned out.
“I couldn’t have dreamed of what’s happened, but I’m delighted with the journey that I’ve been on and how it’s all panned out,” the 28-year-old told UEFA.
“But I think if you took me back (to when I was at Queen’s Park) and tried to say what I was going to do, the big games I was going to play in, I’d have still laughed in your face.
“I’ve always worked hard. I’ve always looked at my weaknesses instead of my strengths and tried to improve them as the years have gone on. Once you do that, you slowly but surely get a bit better, and you also have the experience of playing a wee bit longer and you start reading the game a bit differently and things like that.
“That all comes as part of age and the more games you play, so you need to wait for that, but I believe I’ve got that now."
Anfield Watch Verdict
Robertson is a defender by trade. But, he is very good going forward. Robertson has scored eight goals and registered 52 assists in 223 appearances for Liverpool's first-team.
The left-back has also won six major trophies during his time at Anfield. Robertson would have to be one of our favourtie players and that's not because he is a star.
We love the energy and aggression he brings to the contest. Robertson is contracted until the conclusion of the 2025-26 campaign.
