Oxlade-Chamberlain has talked about his teammate Robertson.

Liverpool’s

left-back

Robertson

has been one of their most important players since he joined the club in 2017. He has helped the Reds achieve titles in Champions League and Premier League, and many pundits would name him among the best players in his position.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

has also talked about him, saying that he accepts that Robertson is one of the best left-backs in the world, but he doesn’t know how his teammate has reached that level.

“I'm saying he's up there,”

he said of the Scot in a Q&A with Sky Sports

. “And honestly, for a man with such bad technique and footballing ability I don't know how it's possible.

“I've played against him a good few times and it's horrible. With his touch and everything... I don't know – he makes it work for him.”

Robertson himself has refused to accept that he is the world’s best left-back.

“There's quite a few good ones this season in the Premier League in particular I think. Ben Chilwell, [Bayern Munich's] Alphonso Davies of course – he's taken it to a new level. [Barcelona's] Jordi Alba was somebody who I looked up to when I was younger,”

Robertson said

.

“Alaba was somebody [I looked up to], [but] he's more moved into centre-back now. [Kieran] Tierney at Arsenal, fellow Scotsman.”
