Rhys Williams names two toughest opponents in Liverpool training

Rhys Williams has named teammates James Milner and Andy Robertson as the two players that are always on it in Liverpool training.

Williams, 20, has been promoted into a full first-team player this season, with injuries in his centre-back position helping him.

The defender has come through the Reds academy, and he’s now had several months working alongside the senior squad.

Williams has shared that Milner and Robertson are usually the two toughest in Liverpool training due to their work-rate.

Milner, 35, is the perfect role model and must be a real inspiration for the younger players to watch to learn from, as he’s still the ultimate professional in the latter stages of his career.

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Robertson is renowned for his lively character and has come from the lower leagues in Scotland to the elite stage through pure hard work.

“[Milner or Robertson] because those two are nothing less than 100 per cent is good enough,” Williams said.

“They don’t care what day it is, if there is a game tomorrow they are giving it.”

TBR’s View:

It’s no surprise to hear Milner and Robertson are standouts in training, as from the outside they seem to be big characters in the squad.

Reds central midfielder just continues to perform whenever asked, and is such a useful option for manager Jurgen Klopp to have in his squad.

Additionally, Scottish left-back Robertson wears his heart on his sleeves when he’s on the pitch, and is a fiery character.
