Andy Robertson's Crossing Ability Is Aided By 'His Toes Facing The Wrong Way'
Jake Livermore says Andy Robertson's crossing ability is so good thanks in part to his weirdly arranged toes.
Robertson has been a key cog in Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool machine after arriving for £8 million from Hull City and has registered 23 Premier League assists from left-back for the European and world champions.
The Scotland skipper has provided a whole host of excellent service to Liverpool's deadly forward line but Livermore, who played with a young Robertson at Hull, says he is aided by his toes facing the wrong way.
"I remember looking at his feet once and saying, 'Blimey, what happened to them?' All his toes were facing the wrong way!'" the West Brom midfielder told The Athletic.
"I started making a bit of a thing out of it, as a bit of friendly banter to get him involved with the other boys and get him on board.
"Then all of a sudden we were doing a bit of crossing and... wow. I found myself saying, 'Has that come off that dodgy toe that's facing the other way?'

"I watched him whipping them in every day and little 'manky foot' was unbelievable."
Just in 2012, an 18-year old Robertson tweeted about not having any money and needing a job while playing for Queen's Park in the Scottish third division.
He was playing in front of 200 odd fans but then secured a move to Dundee United and later Hull City, who snapped him up for just short of £3 million.

Robertson spent three years at the Yorkshire club and Livermore is thrilled to see both he and Maguire playing for top Premier League clubs.
"What a buy that was for Hull. Once he grew physically and got the experience, he was brilliant," Livermore added.
"I am so happy to see him doing so well at Liverpool. He's one of those boys, like Harry Maguire, whom you play alongside and just want to see doing well because they have no ego and get on with their work."
