Robertson: Personal sacrifices have aided our title charge

Andy Robertson believes that a professional attitude to all facets of the game is something that has pushed the team to their current level.

Liverpool made it 38 games without defeat on Saturday evening with their 1-0 win against Tottenham and with that victory they are off to the best ever start to a campaign in the top five leagues in Europe with 61 points from 21 games.

While Liverpool are deservedly picking up a number of accolades, this level of success does not happen overnight or by accident.

To be the best you can be, you naturally have to make a number of sacrifices along the way.

The left-back documented some of those per The Echo:

“As footballers you invest everything, you invest your life into football.

“It’s a short career and nobody likes being in the treatment room, not being fit to play the game.

“For me, I put everything into it to ensure I can play the game or be available.

“That’s what I’ve always done.

“Lifestyle, I always eat well and watch what I eat. 

The Scottish captain said that he avoids one of the main temptations for Footballers during the season, that being alcohol.

“I don’t drink during the season but don’t get me wrong, off season, I have a couple of weeks. I am Scottish after all.

“During the season I try not to and that’s important because you need to invest in your body.

“It’s the most important thing. 

“The team behind the team at Melwood every day, they make sure our bodies are ready and we’re as fit as we can possibly be.

“It’s the most important thing. 

“The team behind the team at Melwood every day, they make sure our bodies are ready and we’re as fit as we can possibly be.”

While Robertson did not know for certain whether his teammates were also on a alcohol ban, he thinks that it is not too far from the mark.

With the season now past the half way mark, discussion has switched from whether someone will challenge Liverpool, to whether the Reds can match the Arsenal invincible side from the 2003/4 season.

However, the left-back says that kind of discussion is not something they are focussed on and instead can distract them from the main goal at hand.

“We’ll let you say that.

 

"We won’t say that because look at the run both us and Man City went on last season.

“What’s to stop Man City doing that again? 

“Being unbeaten in every single game. This league is so hard.

“Maybe sometimes we’ve made it look easy, but believe me it’s not – it’s so hard to perform against every team that wants to beat you.

“The longer the run goes on, the more everyone wants to beat you – ‘we beat Liverpool’ or whatever.

“We don’t take anything for granted. 

“We are not celebrating in there that we are champions."

As for the points record and run of consecutive clean sheets, once again Robertson says are not a main focus for this team.

“For us, they are irrelevant. Yes, if we break records on the way, fine, great, but we will look at that (only) if we get a trophy.

“Because last season we broke records in terms of clean sheets and ended up empty-handed in the Premier League.

“Records don’t mean anything unless they get you the end goal, hopefully this season it will.”
