Andy Robertson has had an incredible few seasons (most recent couple of games notwithstanding) and while we’re all sick and tired of talking about his story and his narrative and how he got here, it’s probably telling that he’s more than happy to talk about Klopp and the role he’s played in Robertson’s career on the eve of lifting another trophy.

“Obviously the faith to sign me, first and foremost, from a relegated club, which probably I don’t think I got many Liverpool fans excited about my signing when people like Mo and Ox were getting signed at the same time,” Robertson told the club’s official website. “The manager saw something in me that he could develop into being a decent player and I’m glad he’s done that.

“It took me time, [first] three or four months was tough, but my relationship with him was the same then as it is now.

“He still looks to improve me every day in training and he still looked to make be better back then as he does now. So my relationship with him is amazing and long may that continue because he’s improved my game, he’s improved me as a person and that’s what you look for in a manager. So I couldn’t ask for much better.”

“I don’t think any of the lads could and hopefully he’s here for many more years to come.”

Liverpool will lift the trophy on Wednesday night at Anfield after their final home game of the season.
