Liverpool starlet takes Spanish lessons

Next Story

Liverpool full back Jack Robinson is hoping to continue his development through the ranks at Anfield with the help of Spanish defender Jose Enrique.

The former Newcastle United left back moved to Merseyside this summer for an undisclosed fee, and has so far featured in every Barclays Premier League clash this campaign, impressing with a string of consistent displays.

And after watching the 25-year-old from a distance, Robinson is now aiming to learn even more from Enrique whilst sharing close quarters with the player.

"Jose is someone I have watched over the last few years and someone who will be a good player for us," the teenager told the Official Liverpool FC magazine.

"He's got everything for a left-back, both defensively and going forward. I was made up when we signed him because I realise that he is eight or nine years older than me.


"I can learn a lot from him because he is good at the things I need to improve on; getting a bit tighter to the players I'm marking; stopping crosses going into the box and going forward; dribbling with the ball; being dynamic."

Robinson enjoyed a rapid rise up the pecking order under Kenny Dalglish last term, finding first team opportunities on the table following a handful of injuries to senior regulars.

Whilst the youngster remembers his debut at Arsenal fondly, he's aware that chances in the starting xi are more likely to be limited this term, but that working hard in training and in cup opportunities could be the key to future success with the Reds.

"The boss just said to me 'you look like you are going to be sick,'" Robinson recalled when told he was starting last season against Arsenal.

"I told him I thought I was going to be sick right there and then. He just started laughing and told me eveything would be fine and to play my normal game. I was so built up on adrenalin, it kept me going through the match. I didn't have time to think about what I was doing."

"You see people like Jamie Carragher and the way he trains. It's the way he plays and leads the team. You realise you can't switch off if you want to stay at the top."
