What Hatem Ben Arfa Said About Andy Robertson After Playing With Him At Hull City

What Hatem Ben Arfa Said About Andy Robertson After Playing With Him At Hull City

Hatem Ben Arfa can spot talent. Case in point: Andy Robertson.

The Scottish left-back spent three seasons at Hull City before securing a transfer to Liverpool in 2017.

He's since become a huge player under Jurgen Klopp, producing heroics on the flanks.

A talent identified by Ben Arfa. The maverick Frenchman summed up his spell at Hull City by referencing both Alex Bruce and Robertson.

"In fairness, they're just not very good," he said via Mirror.

"It's a team with Alex Bruce in it. But there's one who can be super, super, super good... And that's Robertson."

Bit harsh on Bruce but he's nailed his assessment of Robertson.

Liverpool snapped him up for £8 million and that piece of business is proving to be a very wise investment.

The former Queen's Park player has enjoyed a meteoric rise which also includes being named Scotland captain.

And Ally McCoist believes he'll be a superb leader.

"He's a guy who always leads by example and, if you look at Scotland captains of the past, every one of them led by example, going back to Billy Bremner and all these guys," he said of the 24-year-old.

"Wee Robertson will do just that. I speak to a lot of the Liverpool boys and they say he trains as he plays, which is a great example.

"It's been a wee while since we had a really top, iconic Scottish player that we can all relate to and hold in great esteem.

"I am putting pressure on him here, but I just hope that, with continued success, we can be talking about him in the same way we do with a Kenny Dalglish or a Gordon McQueen - great Scotland players - and I'd be surprised if that wasn't the case."

Is Robertson the best left-back in the Premier League?
