Virgil van Dijk suggested that his Liverpool teammate Andy Robertson enjoyed his best season ever last term, when speaking to the club's official website.

The Reds signed the Scotland international from Hull City in the summer of 2017 for just £8 million, and he has gone on to be a real hit at Anfield, firmly establishing himself as one of the very best left-backs in Europe in the process.

 

Robertson is absolutely vital to the way in which Liverpool play, and it could be argued that he has been one of the Merseyside outfit's best signings in recent history.

He racked up an incredible 13 assists in 48 appearances for the Reds last season - quite astonishing numbers for a left-back.

His teammate Virgil van Dijk is clearly a big fan of the 25-year-old.

The Dutchman spoke to the club's official website, and praised Robertson for his performances last season:

“If you look around the team, Robbo has had his best season ever."

Liverpool will be hoping to go one step further and win the Premier League title next season, and if they are to do just that, Robertson, who earns £60,000 per week according to the Sun, will need to be on his very best form once again.

He is already a popular player at Anfield, but if he performs to the same high standards next season, he will already be approaching legendary status on Merseyside.
