Liverpool midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain: Robertson not the best in training...

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain admits Andrew Robertson is a battler in training.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed how Robertson really struggles when his skills are put to the test in drills such as rondo.

He said, “I say to him, everyone, all the time, 'How can someone that is so bad in a box or a rondo, like the worst I have ever seen, be so good in a match?'.

“You watch him in a rondo, and he's like he has never played football before.

"He gets in a match, and he's so reliable, it's a skill."

However, one man who has caught the eye of Oxlade-Chamberlain in training is Thiago Alcantara.

“He has been one of my favourite midfielders for years," he told Soccer AM. “To see him do what he does daily, he is a top, top player."
