Andy Robertson has a scary message for opponents: he thinks he can get even better.
After the last couple of seasons where his progression under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp has been unbelievable, the Scot sees no reason that the insane rate of improvement cannot continue.
Robertson said, via the Liverpool ECHO: “I think I’ve been good but I can always be better. That’s the way I’ve always worked. I’ll never praise myself because I think there’s always improvement to be made.
“Even when I have a good game, you can still do things better. I’ve had a good season but I still have a lot of improvement to make and hopefully, I can show that in the following seasons.”
That is the perfect attitude to have, and one that Klopp loves from his stars. The hunger to succeed and get even better is exactly what the Reds look for when recruiting, and Michael Edwards and co certainly got Robertson’s signing right – no more Mario Balotelli-type signings are imminent.
Robertson has become one of the best full-backs in the world, along with Trent Alexander-Arnold on the opposite side. Even if he stays at his current level for the rest of his career, he’ll be the Reds number one left-back for the next five years or more.
