Robertson insists Liverpool doesn't miss Sadio Mane

After Sadio Mane left the club for a move to Bayern, Liverpool is currently enduring a difficult season as they have struggled for consistency. However, Robertson believes Darwin Nunez and Luiz Diaz are capable of filling the Senegalese's void.

Sitting sixth in the Premier League table and being eliminated from the Champions League, FA Cup, and League Cup, Liverpool are struggling this season after Sadio Mane left the club for Bayern last summer. However, Andy Robertson rules out Liverpool being affected by Mane's departure.

Being asked if the Reds miss Mane, Robertson told

BBC Radio 5 Live

: “To be honest, no. Don't get me wrong, I had a fantastic relationship with Sadio in terms of me and him down the left-hand side for five years. He was a joy to play with, every game. I loved playing with him, we linked really well. He helped me going back, the way I helped him going forward. And yeah we linked up really well. When he left, there was probably no-one more gutted than me because of the relationship we had.

“But we've got fantastic players that can play in their positions. We brought in Darwin, who has been really good to start. We've got Luis Diaz who has obviously been injured and re-injured and things like that, which is difficult. Jots [Diogo Jota] can play there, who's got injured. We have been a little bit unlucky with injuries, I think once we get them back fully fit then yeah. Look, Sadio was a wonderful player, a Liverpool legend but he wanted to go and he went to Bayern Munich and we wish him all the best.”
