Former Liverpool star Jose Enrique rates Andy Robertson very highly. Indeed, he believes that the 26-year-old Anfield star is the best left-back in the world.
Robertson has had to deal with a lot this season. Liverpool’s defence has been decimated by injuries, and he also had the pressure of helping Scotland reach the European Championships.
Best in the world
Throughout those difficulties, Robertson’s performances have remained consistent. That is why Enrique rates him as the best around, ahead of Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies.
“For me, he has been the best left-back in the world for the last few years” he said (Sky Sports).
“I know everyone talks about Davies from Bayern Munich, but if you talk about consistency and level of performance, this guy is unbelievable.”
Enrique also believes that if Liverpool’s player of the year was to be selected, Robertson would come out on top.
“Liverpool play about every three days and this guy always gives you a good performance and for me, he is the player of the season for Liverpool” he concluded.
Big tests ahead
Robertson is set to face some big tests in 2021. Those start on Sunday, when Liverpool takes on Manchester United in a top of the table Premier League clash.
That will be followed by trying to help Liverpool retain the title, and regain the Champions League. There is also of course Scotland to take into the account. The national team captain faces World Cup qualifying and the European Championships.
However, so consistent has Robertson been that it would be no surprise to see him comfortably sail through the difficulties ahead. He has passed practically every other test he has faced in his career so far. That is a measure of how good a player Robertson is.
