You know things are on the down slope when the rumours about dressing room bust-ups start appearing in the press. After the loss to Leicester City last week, it was said that tempers flared between Andy Robertson and goalkeeper Alisson, ending in a fat lip for Robertson. Jordan Henderson has already come out to debunk this, but Robertson has had his say on it as well while speaking with Sky Sports Live.
“I don’t look like the boxing type, do I!” said the notoriously laidback defender. “The least (likely) two people to fight in the dressing room are myself and Ali, to be honest.
“When you get a couple of bad results, in current times I think people are sitting at home a bit bored and obviously somebody made up a rumour that the gaffer didn’t come home whereas me and Ali were fighting.”
And because he’s Robbo, he added, “I love how I was the one who ended up with the burst lip. I would rather it was the other way about, but beggars can’t be choosers! The stuff that was getting written was a lot of nonsense. For the players and everyone in the training ground, we just need to block all that out.”
Liverpool have enough problems without adding imaginary ones to the list. It’s nice to see Robertson is in relatively high spirits, despite the situation that the Reds are in.
