Liverpool’s Andy Robertson recently shared, as reported by NTOF, some concerns he had about the number of players picking up injuries in games he has recently played in.

For a while it looked as if he could join that legion of injured players as he went down with an injury during Liverpool’s Champions League game against Ajax on Tuesday night.

Was down with an ankle injury

If fans had been at Anfield, a hush might have descended on the stadium, as it would have been a real blow for Liverpool if Robertson had become the latest player to join their injury list.

However, the player managed to recover from the injury. In fact, he played the entire game as Liverpool defeated Ajax 1-0 to clinch first place in their Champions League group with a game to spare.

Praised by manager

The Scotland captain was praised for his courage by his manager Jurgen Klopp following the game.

“I’m very, very happy because of the way the boys threw themselves into the game and the way the kids came through and the way Robbo played on after taking a proper knock to his ankle” Klopp said.

The good thing for Robertson is that with Liverpool already qualified for the next stage of the Champions League, he can be rested for the last group stage game. Robertson will likely be rested for the game against Midtjylland next Wednesday.

That is also good news for Scotland boss Steve Clarke. He will want Robertson managed as carefully as possible in the run-up to the European Championships next year.
