​West Ham attacker Bowen improved training with 'world's best left-back' Robertson

West Ham United winger Jarrod Bowen says that he is a better player because of training with Andy Robertson.

The two were at Hull City together a few years ago, before Robertson got his big money move to Liverpool.

And Bowen admits that having to tussle with the Scottish international helped his game progress.

Bowen told reporters after West Ham's 3-2 loss to Liverpool: "I spoke to Robbo briefly after the game and he told me, 'Well done on the move, just go and smash it'.

"When he went to Liverpool, a lot of people kind of wrote him off before he had kicked a ball.

"What he has gone on to achieve, though, didn't shock me because I had seen him training every day at Hull, along with Harry Maguire.

"I was up against Robbo every day for two years at Hull and matching yourself against now one of the best left-backs in the world, I believe, has helped me as well."
