Silva has suggested that Everton left-back Lucas Digne is actually better than Robertson.
But the Anfield crowd do not agree with the Everton boss’s assessment of the two full-backs.
Then U can't be taken serious Silva!!!— Petter (@ektelfc_petter) April 17, 2019
And he knocked Liverpool back twice to be able to live his dream. Wonder if he's awake yet?— Lucas's Dad (@IanRainford70) April 17, 2019
Best because he wears blue? What a joke for a measurement tool.— En Bermukim (@DContrarian) April 17, 2019
Facts are, Digne is not even half the player that Robertson is. How is Silva a manager because clearly he lacks football knowledge.— Dylan van der Spuy (@dylanvdspuy14) April 17, 2019

So not a biased view then— Oliver B (@RoyalApexL) April 17, 2019
He’s basically just admitted that Robertson is the better player but has to say Digne is better because he plays for them https://t.co/oXDRqcPHUz— Childish Fabinho (@NoticeNaby) April 17, 2019
Everton manager Marco Silva has waded into the debate over who is the best left-back in the city.— supermane10 (@supermanelfc) April 17, 2019
Andy Robertson and Lucas Digne have both been in terrific form this season but Silva has backed the Frenchman. Silva More deluded than I thought he was tbh. pic.twitter.com/Qx2CY3vVEL
“Robertson is a very good one also. He is a fantastic boy, a fantastic professional," the Toffees boss said.
“He is our rival but he deserves everything he is achieving in his career but Lucas is Lucas, and Lucas, for me, is the best one because he is our player and playing in our blue shirt.”
Digne and Robertson have played key roles for Everton and Liverpool respectively this season.
Digne only arrived at Goodison Park from Barcelona over the summer but he has quickly taken to English football.
Robertson, meanwhile, plays a vital role in Jurgen Klopp’s side’s defence.
Robertson has made himself Liverpool’s first choice left-back, with his performances earning him a great deal of praise over the campaign.
