Ex-Liverpool star Enrique lauds Robertson as world's best left-back

Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique believes Andy Robertson is the world's best left-back.

The Scotsman has exceeded expectations for Liverpool after joining from Hull City for a modest fee in 2017.

Now with Premier League and Champions League titles to his name, Robertson is the best at his position, according to former left-back Enrique.

Asked if he is surprised how well Robertson has settled into the Liverpool team, Enrique told Sky Sports News: "He has surprised everyone. When he arrived at Liverpool it was hard in a big club after coming from Hull City.

"Alberto Moreno was starting ahead of him but for me, he has been the best left-back in the world for the last few years.

I know everyone talks about [Alphonso] Davies from Bayern Munich, but if you talk about consistency and level of performance, this guy is unbelievable.

"Liverpool play about every three days and this guy always gives you a good performance and for me, he is the player of the season for Liverpool."
