Jose Enrique says Liverpool star is best in the world in his position

Andy Robertson has been a revelation since arriving at Anfield.

Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has told Anfield Watch that he has been blown away by Andy Robertson during the last couple of seasons.

The Scottish defender has been a revelation since arriving at Anfield in 2017 for £8 million from Hull City (BBC).

Enrique, who also played on the left-hand side of the defence, thinks Liverpool have one of the world’s top performers in Robertson.

He told Anfield Watch: “For me, we have the best two full-backs in the world right now. Liverpool have defensively been very strong.

“For me, Andy has been the best left-back in the world in the last two seasons. He gives the team so much going forward and he’s really aggressive defensively.

“He adapted really well and Jurgen Klopp has got the best out of him. The older you get as a footballer, the more important the manager is. He’s the best left-back in the world, 100%.”

 

At 26, Robertson has plenty of years left ahead of him and the flying full-back could yet improve.

That is a scary thought for opposition teams who have struggled with the attacking threat of the Scot.

Enrique never quite scaled the same heights as Robertson but he was a fan favourite who always gave his all when called upon.

Given that he only cost £8 million, Robertson could go down as one of the best bargains ever in the Premier League-era.

He has linked up superbly well with Sadio Mane and the left-hand side has proved particularly fruitful for Liverpool.

Robertson has already claimed a Champions League winners medal and a Premier League one should follow.

If the £50,000-a-week star continues his fine form his trophy haul should continue to increase as his career progresses.
