Fascinating comments from the full-back.

Andy Robertson recently took part in an interesting interview, where he discussed his views on Liverpool’s incredible season so far.

Ahead of Saturday night’s Champions League final, Robertson chatted about his own season on a personal level, as well as his club almost pulling off an extraordinary quadruple win.

The Scottish international was asked about his attacking output season, which saw him pick up 10 assists, while only his teammates Mo Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold registered more.

But Robertson said he felt more proud of the fact that he managed to keep Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka quiet, before heaping praise on the young England star.

Speaking to The Times, he said: “I have taken more confidence from games where I have not had goal involvements. For instance, Arsenal away is always one I go to.

“I know how good Saka can be and I know in that game I managed to keep him quiet. That was not a big factor in us winning, but a big factor in Arsenal not winning because he is one who sets the tone for Arsenal.

“He is so direct, creates chances and I know in that game I managed to keep him quiet.”

While these comments may seem like just one Premier League star giving credit to another, many are speculating online whether or not there is something slightly more tactical at play here from the Liverpool man.

Arsenal are reportedly very eager to convince Saka, who is valued between €90 million – €120 million, to sign a new contract at the club.

But given his incredible talents, and the fact he is yet to ever play a game of Champions League football, he may be tempted to look at the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City in the near future.

And it seems Robertson is laying down the groundwork already.
