Liverpool fullback Jack Robinson says he owes his senior career to U21 coach Rodolfo Borrell.

The left-back has made three starts for the first XI under Brendan Rodgers so far this season and is challenging the likes of Jose Enrique and Glen Johnson for the left-back slot.

Robinson told Liverpoolfc.com: "Rodolfo has been a big influence on my career. He expects high standards and that has really helped me develop my game.

"I have a lot of respect for all of the coaches at the Academy and they have got me to where I am at the moment.

"It's fantastic to be training with the lads I grew up from the U18 team now at Melwood with the first-team squad. The manager has given us our chance and he has shown a lot of faith in us."
