Robertson: I’m not a good spectator

Andrew Robertson is determined to force his way into Jurgen Klopp's starting eleven this season.

Liverpool signed the 23-year-old Scottish international left-back from Hull last week for £10 million following three impressive seasons.

With Klopp opting to utilise the versatile James Milner in the left-back position as Alberto Moreno struggled in the role, Robertson feels he has every chance at making the position his own.

And the former Queen's Park and Dundee United will get a chance to prove himself, with Milner out with a thigh injury.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Robertson said: "I've come here wanting to be first choice.

"Obviously it's up to the manager as the competition will be big for the position, but it's one where I'm hoping to come out on top.

"I respect the other players and I know how good a job they can do but I've just got to bring my A-game and hopefully it's enough for me to be first choice."

He added: "I don't like it if I'm not part of the starting team. I don't like sitting on the bench even when it was very rare at Hull to rest during cup games.

"I'm not a good spectator, I'm a nightmare when I'm injured and I'm not playing."

Liverpool are currently on a pre-season tour in Germany and next play a friendly encounter against Hertha Berlin on Saturday, before taking on Bayern Munich in the Audi Cup next week.
