Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson has spoken about the rumour which suggested that he was involved in a dressing room fight with teammate Alisson.
It was reported that Robertson and Alisson had a fight after Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium earlier this month.
However, Robertson has confirmed that the aforementioned rumour is false.
“I don’t look like the boxing type, do I!” said Robertson, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
“The least (likely) two people to fight in the dressing room are myself and Ali, to be honest.
“When you get a couple of bad results, in current times I think people are sitting at home a bit bored and obviously somebody made up a rumour that the gaffer didn’t come home whereas me and Ali were fighting.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
It does not shock us at all that Robertson and Alisson did not come to blows. Having a fight with a teammate does not solve anything at the end of the day.
Yes, it has been a difficult season for Liverpool. In the Premier League this season, the Reds have dropped points in 14 out of 25 matches.
Despite that being the case, that is no reason for Robertson and Alisson to come to blows. Both players have achieved so much together for Liverpool.
They were both in the Liverpool side that won the club its first league title in 30 years. With that being the case, we believe that they would respect each other.
