Andy Robertson has praised Jordi Alba as the best left back in the world now.
Sport quotes Robertson as saying: “For me, the best left-back in the world is Jordi Alba.”
Robertson is one of the better defenders in the world at the moment. The fact that he was not selected for the fifa XI caused a huge uproar.
He was signed by Jurgen Klopp from Liverpool two seasons ago. In his first season, he moved out Alberto Moreno, and made the spot his own.
He was a fast left back and improved on his speed with the precision of play. Robertson knows how to play both in attack and in defense and is a player any team would love to have.
He has helped Liverpool solidify their left side and increasing their attacking potent by letting Mane cut in at will. So who did he learn all this from?
Well, according to the player it is from Jordi Alba. Alba actually uses all of these traits and is brilliant at it. He has been doing it for years and is one of the few players who at left back has made telling contributions both in attack and defense.
