Liverpool ace Andy Robertson’s apology to Sky Sports for Champions League gaffe

Liverpool stars Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson were asked to discuss their starring roles in the Reds' remarkable season, and the Scottish left-back ended up issuing a comedy apology to Sky Sports mid-interview.

Liverpool remain unbeaten in the league and on course to claim their first title in 30 years under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp, with Robertson and Alexander-Arnold both playing key roles in the German's unrelenting team.

And the two defenders were asked to answer questions based on their own statistics from the campaign so far.

"Who has scored the most goals this season?" asked the Sky Sports interviewer.

  • Jurgen Klopp ‘happy’ transfer target Timo Werner is ‘very proud’ over Liverpool link

  • Premier League to make decision over Liverpool title if coronavirus ends season

While Alexander-Arnold proudly held his own sign up, Robertson held both pictures up and proclaimed "It's a draw!"

But he was swiftly corrected by the interviewer who reminded him that it was only including goals scored in the Premier League.

"What does the Champions League not count?!" a miffed Robertson asked.

"It's Sky Sports isn't it," reminded Alexander-Arnold.

  • Virgil van Dijk and Alisson named as Liverpool's only two ‘irreplaceable’ players

"Oh sorry Sky!" replied the Scotsman, with a hint of sarcasm.

Robertson was also asked what the rapport is like among Liverpool's back five under Jurgen Klopp.

"It's amazing and we can involve Alisson in that as well. We have such good relationships with each other," he said.

"Virgil [Van Dijk] is the leader of the pack as he's more central and can see the game a lot more. He's the one who gets us going and leads us the way he knows how.

"But whoever is playing, we've had changes there, nothing changes in the attitude and commitment to keep clean sheets and that's installed in us from the coaching staff. Trent has said we believe that we can keep clean sheets and I think the midfield is key to that.

"The manager wants us to get forward, he wouldn't be happy if me and Trent were just stood on the halfway line defending and the back four just stayed where they are. It's up to us to take the opportunities to get forward when we feel it is right."
