£8m for Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson looks better every game

Liverpool completed the £8million signing (BBC) of defender Andrew Robertson in 2017 and it would be difficult to find a greater piece of value for money in recent times.

The 24-year-old has quickly developed into a key player at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp and has to be considered one of the best left-backs in world football as it stands.

He’s already chalked up five assists in 15 games this season and his levels of consistency for the Merseyside club have been staggering.

The Scotland international has brilliant attacking qualities that help him contribute in the final third, while defensively he’s improved too and is hard to beat in one-on-one scenarios.

Liverpool’s bargain deal for the speed machine looks even greater when compared to a shocking piece of business done by Jose Mourinho.

 

Chelsea completed an £8million deal (Times) for Spanish left-back Asier del Horno back in 2005 and he completely flopped during his one season at Stamford Bridge.

He is considered a major Premier League flop at Chelsea and is remembered for his mediocre displays, plus his straight red card for a challenge on Lionel Messi in the Champions League.

Del Horno managed to earn a Premier League medal for the 2005/06 campaign, but he was moved on after a year after failing to make the grade.

Liverpool have certainly struck gold with their seven-figure fee for Robertson and he’s only going from strength to strength.
