Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Must Honour Lionel Messi Shirt Bet With Andy Robertson

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Must Honour Lionel Messi Shirt Bet With Andy Robertson

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will have to honour a Lionel Messi shirt bet he made with teammate Andy Robertson.

The Liverpool midfielder only has one shirt up in his house and that is six-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi's.

However, he did promise Robertson that he would frame a shirt the Scotsman gave to him if he got 10 assists this season.

The former Hull City left-back has managed 11 in the Premier League and so 'Ox' is now obliged to do the honours because, as we know, a deal is a deal.

He was asked about it the bet in a Carpool video filmed in 2019 but only recently shared on Liverpool's YouTube channel.

"There's only shirt up in the house and it's not moved - it's Messi's shirt," Oxlade-Chamberlain states.

"I said I'd remove that and put Robbo's shirt up if he got 10 assists.

Andy Robertson Doesn't Want Lionel Messi 'Anywhere Near Premier League'

published at7 months ago

This has been a rather long-standing bet that Ox discussed back in September as part of a Lie Detector test with two youngsters from the Liverpool academy.

He explained: "I do have a deal with him about assists.

"The deal was if he gets 10 Premier League assists this season, I will get a framed Andrew Robertson shirt to put in my house.

"And I'll put it next to [Lionel] Messi"s."

Robertson has once again reached double figures in assists this term, with his tenth setting up Sadio Mane against Arsenal. His most recent, in the pulsating 5-3 win over Chelsea at Anfield, was ironically for Oxlade-Chamberlain to score the final goal of the game.

If they've shook on it, then it's only right Oxlade-Chamberlain follows through. We're keenly awaiting a picture of Robertson's shirt being up there with Messi's in his house.
