Liverpool 23-year-old admits he is unhappy with current role at club
By Laura O’Leary
Andy Robertson has revealed he is finding it difficult at Liverpool after his summer move, due to a lack of game time and that he has spoken to Klopp about the situation.
In an interview with the Liverpool Echo, the defender spoke candidly about his frustrations at the club currently.
He said: “Of course it’s difficult for me, 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.”
The 23-year-old defender moved to Anfield from Hull City in July 2017, but has not been able to cement a position in the first team.

The defender has only featured three times for the Reds across all competitions, though he did play the full 90 minutes in all those games.
Robertson has been kept out the team by Alberto Moreno, who after being out-of-favour himself last season has become Liverpool’s first choice left-back.
The young defender was able to get 90 minutes under his belt during the international break, as he represented Scotland for the full 90 minutes in their game against Holland.
Jurgen Klopp has already spoken publicly about Robertson’s omission from the team, and bluntly said he had to improve.
Last season at Hull City, the defender was key member of the side and played 39 times across all competitions for the Tigers.
Liverpool are fifth in the Premier League with 19 points from 11 games, and their next game is against Southampton on November 18.
