Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Has A Framed Shirt Of Andy Robertson And Lionel Messi At Home

Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain lost a bet which will place teammate Andy Robertson alongside Lionel Messi in his house.

Robertson recorded an impressive 11 Premier League assists last season.

As a result, Oxlade-Chamberlain will frame Robertson's match-worn jersey in his crib.

'Ox' had a bet with Robertson that he wouldn't get double figures in assists for the 2018/19 league season.

Of course, the Scottish left-back created 11 goals last season and 'Ox' confirmed their friendly wager when taking part in a lie detector quiz.

When asked about the bet with Robertson, the 25-year-old ex-Southampton player said: "Who told you that? I do have a deal with him about assists.

"The deal was if he gets 10 Premier League assists [last] season I will get a framed Robertson shirt put up in my house next to Messi's.

"I'm in trouble boys, that's not something you want on your wall," he hilariously added.

Oxlade-Chamberlain missed a majority of last season through injury but upon his return, he'll take the No.15 shirt for the 2019/20 campaign.

"It's a number I've had a long affiliation with through my career," he said.

"Hopefully, I can carry it as well as 'Studge' has the last six or seven seasons. I've got nothing else to really say, other than...We've won it six times!"
