Liverpool new boy Robertson: It feels a wee bit surreal

Andrew Robertson admits it “feels a wee bit surreal” to have joined Liverpool from Championship side Hull.

The Reds announced on Friday that the left-back had signed ‘a long-term contract’ at Anfield.

Robertson is expected to cost an initial £8million, and discussed his move with Liverpool’s official website.

“It feels a wee bit surreal just now,” he said. “Obviously I’m delighted. There’s been a lot of speculation over the last couple of weeks but I’m glad that the deal’s finally been done and I’m a Liverpool player.

“My family are proud of what I’ve achieved so far and they’re all over the moon with the move, as well as me of course. We’re all just looking forward to being part of the Liverpool family now.

“There’s not many, if any, more special clubs than Liverpool. When you grow up as a kid you dream of playing with big clubs such as Liverpool and to make that a reality is a dream come true for me.

“I just want to prove to people that I can do it at this level, and hopefully I manage to do that this season and go on to do good things for this club.”

He’s better than Mbappe, remember.

Robertson, who will wear the number 26 at Anfield, has won 15 caps for his country and scored his only international goal in a 3-1 friendly defeat by Roy Hodgson’s England in 2014.

He joins Mohamed Salah and Dominic Solanke as summer additions to Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

Left-back has long been an area of concern for the Reds and former England midfielder James Milner spent much of the season in the position after Alberto Moreno failed to convince.
