Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has admitted that he’s usually running around like a “headless chicken” in one particular training drill.
Manager Jurgen Klopp uses the popular rondos training drill, which when a group of players tries to keep possession in a small circle from opponents in the middle.
26-year-old left-back Robertson has admitted he can be shown up in the training exercise.
But it’s not too much of a surprise given the amount of technical players in the Reds squad, especially in the midfield and attacking areas.
To Robertson’s credit he’s one of the best crossers at the Merseyside club and surely has to be top of the pile in terms of stamina.
“Yesterday was probably my best performance in a rondo. I walked off there thinking I was the main man, but unfortunately I don’t get that feeling a lot. I’m usually running around in the middle like a headless chicken. I’m not the best at them,” Robertson told Soccer AM.
It must have been a great place to be Liverpool’s training during the two previous seasons, but this campaign surely the mood is a lot less cheery.
The Reds have remarkably lost their last four consecutive matches in the Premier League and finishing in the top four now this season looks like it’s going to be a real scrap for them.
A number of injury problems is certainly playing its role, but on top of that individuals aren’t performing to the best of their abilities.
Robertson and teammate Mohamed Salah are arguably the two that standout in the squad as the pair still shining each game.
