Robertson reveals Klopp ‘discussion’ in Liverpool vow after boost

The club vs country debate is a long running one in football and, while Robertson stresses Klopp is supportive of his players, Liverpool are fighting on three fronts in their attempts to add more honours to their list this season.

Manchester City await in the FA Cup semi-finals, Benfica are up next in the Champions League quarter-finals, all while Klopp’s side battle for a Premier League title after already having won the Carabao Cup.

Robertson missed Scotland’s friendly with Poland at Hampden Park on Thursday through illness but has linked up with Steve Clarke’s team ahead of Tuesday’s friendly against Austria in Vienna on Tuesday.

“It is a discussion, of course it is, it is always interesting,” said Robertson. “The manager of Liverpool supports the boys who go away on international duty, he knows how important it is for all of us.

“He wants us to be sensible of course, but he knows how important it is to us, just like every Liverpool game, and we always make ourselves available for them. He will probably be happy that I have only played one game and not two.

“But I will go down to Liverpool fresh and good to go for the run-in and that is the most important thing for him and the most important thing for the club. Hopefully I will get another cap tomorrow and that is the most important thing for Scotland.”

As well as chasing three trophies with Liverpool over the next two months, Robertson will then attempt to lead his country to a World Cup for the first time in 24 years if the play-off semi-final against Ukraine goes ahead as planned.

Wales lie in wait for the winners of that clash.
