This is incredible!
In 2012, six years ago, Andrew Robertson tweeted that he needed to find a job because he had no money.
In 2018, he’s preparing for a Champions League Final after putting in two quality performances down Liverpool’s left flank against AS Roma in the semis.
life at this age is rubbish with no money #needajob

That’s the kind of thing they make movies about!
As a teenager, Robbo was up in Scotland, considering packing in the game for a normal job.
But his progression has been incredible and he’s now regarded by many as the best left-back in England.
He’s quick, feisty and hard-working – and the fact we snapped him up for £8m last season is jaw-dropping.
At the time, many doubted Jurgen Klopp, angry that we were not signing a more established name.
But who’d swap Robbo for Benjamin Mendy, Jonas Hector – or any of the other linked left-backs we ignored – now?
If he continues at his current level, especially if we secure a Champions League victory, he could eventually go down as an all-time Liverpool great.
But one step at a time!
