Andy Robertson feels he shouldn’t have shoved Messi when they first met in last year’s UCL clash.
Andy Robertson revealed he regrets shoving Messi in Liverpool’s last Barca encounter. The Scottish fullback is famous for his unwanted and provocative actions on the pitch. He is an eccentric person and loves joking around. His actions with Tom Davies in Premier League and with Rafinha in the club world cup are other examples.
The 24-year-old is one of the best full-backs in present-day football. And he has a string of impressive performances under his belt. He and Trent Alexander Arnold have a staggering amount of assists to their name. Robertson is also consistent in the full-back position and is also great going forward.
