Vertonghen makes big but fair claim about Liverpool’s wonderful left-back

Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen has declared Andy Robertson one of the best in the business following the Scots’ jaw-dropping season.

Most recently, Robertson got the better of Vertonghen in the Champions League Final, with Liverpool overcoming the centre-back’s Tottenham side 2-0 in Madrid.

Vertonghen has lauded Robbo and reckons he’s practically unrivalled at left-back right now.

“He’s been unbelievable this season,” Vertonghen told BBC Sport. “He’s probably one of the best left-backs in Europe at the moment.

“He played a great final and did so well in the Premier League. All those assists and his overall contribution, he’s a great player.

“It’s not about revenge for me but he played well in the final, Liverpool did well and if you win the Champions League you deserve to win but it will be a different game on Tuesday.”

We agree with everything the Spurs man has to say.

To think, Liverpool fans were genuinely a little underwhelmed when we acquired him from Hull. Now, he’s arguably the best left-back on the planet.

On our other flank is 20-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold; a ludicrously good footballer already and someone who also has the potential to become the best on the planet in his position.

When Jurgen Klopp joined the club, we had Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno – but Trent and Robbo provide a serious, serious upgrade.
