Liverpool ‘target’ won’t rush his decision

Andrew Robertson

Hull City defender Andy Robertson says he won’t be rushed into making a decision about his future.

The 23-year-old left-back has been on Jürgen Klopp’s list of ‘possibles’ for some time but a few weeks ago it started to sound like Liverpool were cooling their interest in him.

However, with the Reds since having accepted that they have been unable to tempt Ryan Sessegnon to Anfield, Robertson could be under consideration again. Liverpool doubted Sessegnon’s enthusiasm and withdrew their interest. He’s now been tipped to join Spurs.

Robertson says he will consider offers only once Scotland’s World Cup qualifier against England on Saturday is out of the way.

The Scotland international said: “The only thing I can really say is that all the players face uncertainty. There will be people moving on but, for now, I’m just focusing on this game in front of us. I do that because it’s so massive for the country.

“All I can do is play as well as I can on the day, and I’ll worry about my future after that. I’ll sit down after this game with the people I need to talk to, and decide if it’s right for me to stay at Hull, or if I should look to move on. That’s not something I’m going to worry about until well into the summer.”

Jonas Hector, Kieran Tierney and Ryan Bertrand have all been considered by Klopp who is hoping to move Alberto Moreno out. The Spaniard has been linked with a possible move to Newcastle United and few will shed a tear if he eventually leaves the club this season, in fact we’d even buy him a ComeOn Voucher Code to make it happen! He’s a nice enough lad but he doesn’t fill us with much confidence.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner was deployed as a converted left-back during the 2016-17 campaign and didn’t do much wrong. The hard-working, experienced player may not be everyone’s favourite cup of tea but he kept Alberto Moreno out of the side and made the position his own. However, Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp is looking at improving the options that he can call upon in that position. His initial plan was to bring in Ryan Sessegnon as an understudy to Milner or someone else (possibly Robertson) but it is highly unlikely that anything will come of that now.

Klopp doesn’t seem too concerned with the left-back situation. He certainly wants to focus on other areas of the team first. Once he has strengthened other positions, we expect the manager will then address the left-back position.
