Robertson ready for semi final challenge


Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has said that he is ready for the Champions League semi finals.

The Scotland international started both quarter final legs against Premier League leaders Manchester City and believes that the confidence gained from that will put the squad in good stead – whoever the draw throws up on Friday.

“It is the semi-final, it doesn’t matter who we get.” he told reporters.

“Roma got an unbelievable result tonight, they’ve put out Barcelona – we all know what a great side they are.

“We will look forward to the draw. There is going to be no easy way into the final but we’ll be up to the challenge and hopefully we’ll do enough.” he continued.

Robertson was pleased to get over the giant hurdle of beating Pep Guardiola’s City side and was fully expecting a difficult tie.

“We knew how hard it was going to be over the two legs.” he said..

“They’ve been the best team in our league hands down this season.

“They will go on to be rightfully champions and well done to them for that, but over the two legs I think we’ve been the better team.

“Especially in the first leg when we dominated the first half, really that won us the tie.

“We’ve grabbed a couple of away goals and we’re delighted to be in the semi-finals.

“We knew how hard it was going to be but luckily we’ve stood up to that challenge.” he finished.

Robertson will find out who Liverpool face next when the draw takes place on Friday morning.
