Robertson: We are champions by a country mile and we deserve it

Recommended Posts

What makes fans relate to Andy Robertson is his honesty and down to earth nature and that was in full display after Liverpool were crowned Premier League champions on Thursday night.

After a global health pandemic put the season in severe jeopardy, there were real concerns that the Reds were going to be able to celebrate their fine season in their own right.

But as general life slowly returns to normal, so too does Football and the players were able to finally let loose after Chelsea defeated Man City giving the Reds their crowning moment.

Robbo knows a thing about being doubted and proving people wrong.

It is something that he has done time and time again throughout his career and it is the ethos that Liverpool have carried with them during this campaign.

There was a sense that after having a sensational season in 2018/9 only to be pipped by Man City, that there would be a lingering hangover much like what happened in 2014/5 after the late collapse the season before.

But this group isn’t called the ‘mentality monsters’ for no reason.

The left-back takes us into their mindset as the Mirror reported.

“We are champions, and we are champions by a country mile this season... and we deserve it.

“When people thought we might drop points we have shown the world, ‘No, that’s not us’,” he said. “ Leicester away was the perfect example.

“So many people were talking about us being fatigued or jet-lagged (after the World Club Cup). 

“There was no chance that was going to happen and we proved a lot of people wrong that night.

“Time and time again we have proven people wrong, with our mentality and our resilience.

“Hopefully that continues to be the case, because the minute we stop we will have trouble.

But the Scottish captain says as far as he is concerned, that will not be happening.

“We will not allow it, and the manager won’t allow it. As long as it is like that we have a fine chance to win trophies every season.”



Robertson believes the seeds of the success for this season were sown in Madrid last June.

“It was the Champions League final. 

“We’d got the hurt of the Premier League, and if we had to go home after the last game of the season against Wolves that would have been really tough.

“But the fact is, we took the next step. Winning the Champions League made us champions, it made us winners and we got the feeling for it.


“That’s why we came back in pre-season as if this year was going to be our year for the Premier League, that we were going to make it our year for the league and we were going to go out and do it.

“We just felt we were going to show everyone we can win the league, could go again and get the better of Man City this time.

“And we did that from the get-go. From day one we showed it against Norwich at home and we have continued that. 

“We’ve probably been in a league of our own this season.”

You can say that again Robbo.

And long may that continue.
