Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann praises Reds’ left-back Andrew Robertson
Recent incoming transfers by Liverpool have been worth each penny paid by the club. The transfer of Andrew Robertson from Hull City back in 2017 is no different. In hindsight, the £8m the Reds’ paid for his services seems like a proper steal.
At that time, Liverpool had Alberto Moreno in the left-back spot. The Spaniard who was extremely effective going forward, could not match his offensive prowess with his defending. It was so much that the manager Jurgen Klopp often played James Milner there instead of Moreno.
The arrival of Robbo came in at just the right time for the Reds. Not only was he as effective as the Spaniard in attack, but he also proved to become much more secure defensively and cemented his place in the XI almost immediately after making the move.
In such a short span of time, the Scotsman has won every trophy possible in club football with the Reds. And former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has lauded Andy as one of the best buys in Liverpool’s history. Here is what the German said to BoyleSports (h/t Liverpool Echo):
“Andy Robertson has been one of Liverpool’s best signings and probably one of the cheapest as well. When he joined I think people thought he’d be a backup option but he’s turned into one of the best left-backs in the world.”
The 28-year-old has often lauded such praise from all corners of world football. The left-back is extremely effective when it comes to pressing the opposition and his work rate has been second to none. To think that the Reds paid a seven-figure transfer fee to bring him home is mind-blowing.
In 238 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions, Robbo has only eight goals. But his 47 assists in the league have been more than just handy and are the highest for any Reds’ full-back but Trent Alexander-Arnold follows in a close second at 45.

Hopefully, the full-back pair still has a lot left in the tanker to provide for Liverpool, but nevertheless, Robertson will easily go down as an all-time Liverpool legend. For now, his focus will be to start against Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow in an all-important Premier League showdown in north London.
