Liverpool star IS better than anyone else according to Gary Neville

Share this on

It might all be about Mo Salah for Liverpool fans this season, but there are other players who deserve credit for their Champions League run and form in the league – and Gary Nevlle has managed to name one of them.


Despite initially thinking Chelsea star Marcos Alonso was one of – if not the best – left sided full back in the league, he’s changed his mind and has now lavished praise on young Liverpool star Andrew Robertson, who he now thinks has enhanced his game and is a far more complete player than he was.

Robertson has been a consistent player in the side this term and is expected to play against Roma once again in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League, and Neville thinks he will shine.

Gary Neville claimed: “I did a lot of the opposition analysis, so I’d watched a lot of Robertson in terms of what his weaknesses were.

“We saw him as a weakness going back. We saw him as a massive threat going forward but were unconvinced by his defensive work. That was proved actually in one of the Scotland games.

“So when he got to Liverpool I thought he started bright, he looked busy and good going forward but I felt that he would be found out come the big games, the big moments in a defence and goalkeeper that certainly earlier on in the season you weren’t convinced by.

“I thought that he would falter. However, he has done a lot, lot better than I ever imagined.

“You look at the goals and it’s an absolute no-brainer there because Alonso has scored more goals.

“But when I look at the assists, the clean sheets, Robertson’s played a lot less games so his clean sheet ratio is a lot better.

“More touches in the game, obviously Robertson plays more mainly left-back and Alonso plays as a left-sided player.

“I am going to go with Robertson because ultimately I think Liverpool are having a fantastic season and he’s probably been the best left-back and I’ve not been wholly convinced by Alonso.”
