Jurgen Klopp has revealed why Andy Robertson is yet to feature for Liverpool after his summer move from Hull.
The left-back didn’t even make the bench for the opening two matches of the season against Watford and Hoffenheim.
Klopp has allayed any fears about Robertson making a slow start at Anfield, however, saying it is a case of letting him adjust to a new style.
“He is in a good moment,” Klopp told reporters, in his pre-Crystal Palace press conference on Thursday.
“His development so far is really good. He has adapted well and is a really, really good player.
“It is how it is, though, with a specialist left full-back. You can play but you can also not be in the squad.”
“He is in a really good way and everything is fine from my side.
“He came in late and has to adapt to our style of play and all that stuff, but everything is ok.
“We will see (about Andy Robertson featuring at the weekend). We came back yesterday and had a little session, and it was an intense game in Hoffenheim so we have one or two little things with players which we have to see.
“Things will change during the season a lot, and I’ve the told the players. It’s a long season ahead.
“If you train really good and work really hard, if you improve and develop, everything is going to be good at the end.”
