The 31-year-old Tottenham star will come up against the 24-year-old Liverpool left-back during Belgium’s match against Scotland at Hampden Park on Friday evening.
The former Ajax star believes that Robertson has a bright future ahead of him, and the Spurs defender also understands Scotland manager Alex McLeish’s decision to make him the team captain.
Vertonghen told The Glasgow Evening Times about Robertson: “He had a great season last season, was massive for Liverpool and has started this season again very well. He is very attacking and a good offensive player.
“Defensively he is looking very strong as well, it’s good for him that he’s captain of Scotland and he has a great future ahead.”
Rise to stardom
Robertson has been superb for Liverpool and improved massively over the course of last season.
The 24-year-old is brilliant both in attack and in defence, and the Scotland international is the first-choice left-back for Liverpool at the moment.
The former Dundee United defender has proved himself in the Premier League, and given that he is just 24 years of age, the left-back is only going to improve in the coming years.
As for Vertonghen, the Tottenham ace is one of the best central defenders in the Premier League and has been so for a number of years now.
