Liverpool boss Klopp on Robertson signing: Left-back getting relegated coming here?

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has lifted the lid on bringing through Andrew Robertson last season.

Klopp delved into the process which resulted in Liverpool making the surprise signing of Robertson from Hull last summer.

"I'll use an example; Robbo," he told goal. "Robbo we had a long think about. There were not 20 clubs who wanted Robbo.

"A left-back getting relegated and then coming here? It was clear that he needed time, but he took the time, he used the time and now, if I was to sell him I would have more than 20 clubs wanting him. People would pay much more than we did now!

"The whole team gives players opportunity to settle quick and to use their quality to make the next step in their own careers. That's really cool and hopefully we can continue like this."
