2 min read

Scottish professional footballer, Andrew Henry Robertson, has extended his contract with English Premier League club, Liverpool.

The Scotland National team captain signed a new long-term contract with the Reds, noting that he is ready to spend a long time at Anfield.

Naija News understands that Robertson has so far made 177 appearances for the EPL top club.

The left-back is said to have finalised on his stay at Liverpool at the AXA Training Centre on Tuesday.

It could be recalled that the 27-year-old joined Liverpool from Hull City in 2017 and has since helped the club win the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup.

Robertson according to a post on the club’s official website, said “Obviously when the negotiations started and it looked as if my future was going to be here longer term than what it was, then I think it’s no secret that I’m happy at this club,”

Expressing the love he has for the club, The Scottish man added: “I want to stay at this club for as long as possible and to extend my stay, it’s always a happy time for me, for my family. We’re settled here, we love everything about this football club and I’m glad that the journey is continuing.”

He continued, “When you sign for a massive club, I still remember the day as if it was yesterday when I signed here and obviously you have ambitions to become a regular player for Liverpool, to win trophies for this club, to do everything else but the way it’s gone has been excellent.

“But since the very start of my career I’ve always been one to look forward: that’s in the past, that’s something that I can sit down with the people who want to listen to me when I’ve hung up my boots and retired and I can tell them all the stories that we’ve already made.

“But I’m certainly one, and I know a lot of people in this training ground just now are people to look forward and people [who want] to create more history, more stories. Hopefully, people get bored of me when I’ve retired and I can sit down for hours and hours and tell them about all the stories!

“They’re certainly building up but I want to make more and obviously hopefully starting with this season. We want to achieve more, we want to bring hopefully more trophies, more happiness to this club.

“The only way of doing that is by working hard and having the same application that we have done since day one.”
