Andrew Robertson is arguably the best left back in the Premier League in the last year. But life at Liverpool for the Scot was not always plain sailing, he revealed.
There are few who can questions the desire, fitness and attitude of Robertson. The left back has come on leaps and bounds since his move from Hull City and under Jurgen Klopp can be viewed as one of the best there is in his position.
But speaking to The Players Tribune, Robertson revealed an embarrassing moment which left a bad impression on boss Klopp;
“I had to go to Melwood to do a lactate test. After a few laps, I felt something going on with my stomach. A few minutes later, I’m on my knees, puking my guts out on the Melwood pitch.
“If first appearances count, God knows what they thought about me. The next day, I met the manager and I heard his laugh from a mile away. He’d obviously heard about my test. I turn around and he’s walking toward me, rubbing his belly and pointing at me.”
Robertons then goes on to recall how hard he worked to understand the system implemented by the former Dortmund manager. Explaining that despite the complexity of the role he is asked to do, he relishes the opportunity to play at the top level.
