Jose Enrique Full Of Praise For This Liverpool Defender: What Makes Him Such A World-Class Talent?

In a recent interview with Sky Sports News, former Liverpool left-back Jose Enrique reflected on Andrew Robertson got snubbed of a place in last month’s FIFA’s best XI and said, “It’s unbelievable for me. I said last year, he was the best left-back in the world. I know they give it to Marcelo, but it wasn’t fair, in my opinion.

Liverpool won the Champions League and he has been an amazing player for the club. He gives so much on that side. Him and Mane together, I don’t want to be on the right side of the other team.”

Robertson’s Stellar Rise To The Pinnacle Of European Football

Robertson is currently playing at his prime after helping his team win the UEFA Champions League last season. He has established himself amongst the best left-backs in world football through his hard work and perseverance.

The Glaswegian defensive ace has made 12 appearances for the Reds this term, netting one goal while grabbing two assists on all fronts. The 25-year-old has averaged 1.4 tackles, 1.6 interceptions and 1.8 clearances per game in the Premier League this season (stats via whoscored). He has also lifted the UEFA Super Cup with Liverpool earlier this summer.

Robertson has gradually transformed himself into a world-class full-back and is one of the most consistent players in Jurgen Klopp’s squad. He is currently the captain of the Scottish national side, having featured in 33 international fixtures while scoring three goals for his nation thus far.

What Makes Robertson Such A World-Class Player?

Robertson is quick and decisive with everything he does on the field. The Scotland skipper can be a creative force down the left flank as he can whip in some dangerous crosses into the opposition penalty area. He is also a willing worker and is very effective when he chooses to press the opposition high up the pitch.

There is no denying that Robertson has the potential to get even better if he can improve his finishing in the final third. He has struck up a mutually beneficial partnership with Sadio Mane on the left side of the Liverpool midfield. 

The Scotland international is undoubtedly one of the first names on Klopp’s team sheet at Anfield due to his consistency and reliability at the back. What makes Robertson such an exceptional talent is the fact that he has no such weaknesses in his game. The Reds should focus on hanging on to the promising full-back for a long time as he is only getting better with each season.
