Liverpool star unhappy with lack of games

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has spoken out about his lack of game time at Anfield, revealing that he has spoken to Jurgen Klopp about his situation at the club.

The Scotland defender has made just three appearances since moving from Hull City in the summer for £10m, despite how poor Liverpool’s defence has been at times.

Robertson played the full game for his country against the Netherlands on Thursday, but it is expected that he will be back amongst the substitutes when Liverpool host Southampton this weekend.

Speaking about his time so far at Anfield, 23-year-old admits it has been hard for him to not play as regularly.

“Of course it’s difficult for me,” Robertson said. “I don’t make any secret of it. I hate not playing.

“It’s been a very frustrating three months for me. I was looking forward to the Holland game to, hopefully, get some game time. I’m delighted to have got 90 minutes.

“I was a bit rusty and it probably caught up with me in the last 20 minutes, but that’s something I’ve got to look at. I need to get more game time.”

“If I can keep doing what I’m doing then, hopefully, my chance will come.

“I’ve spoken to the manager because I felt as if the settling-in period was over for me and I thought I was ready to play.

“I felt I did myself justice in the games I have played so I had a good chat with him, he gave me a few points to work on and that’s kept me going.

“I know I’m still well in his plans and, if I work on the things he’s asked me to, then, hopefully, I’ll be in the first team, or closer to it.”
