Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he has been thrilled by Andy Robertson’s attitude at Liverpool since his transfer to the Reds this summer.
The Scotland international became the Reds’ third signing of the summer when he joined the Merseyside outfit from Hull City and will be looking to make the left-back slot his own in the coming seasons.
Robertson has not yet featured for the first team in a competitive game for the Reds as he adapts to life under Klopp at Liverpool.
However, the German boss has insisted that he has been pleased with what he has seen from the left-back so far and is backing him to develop into a key player at Anfield in the coming months.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo about Robertson, Reds boss Klopp said: “Whether he’s overly happy, I didn’t ask, but he’s in a good moment.
“He has developed really well so far. He’s a really good player but it’s how it is with specialist left full-backs. You either play or it’s possible you aren’t in the squad.
“Everything is fine from my side. It’s still early. He came in late and still has to adapt to our style of play and all that stuff.
“Things will change during the season and I’ve told the players that.”
Liverpool, who finished in fourth place in the top flight last term, are currently preparing for their Premier League home clash against Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
Klopp’s side are aiming to pick up their first Premier League win of the season after they were held to a 3-3 draw by Watford at Vicarage Road in their opener last weekend.
