Andy Robertson has been speaking about his former Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane who is now at Bayern Munich.
Andy Robertson has dismissed suggestions that Liverpool are missing Sadio Mane this season.
Mane left the club last summer to sign for Bayern Munich. Liverpool agreed a £35m deal for the forward, which saw his six-year stay at Anfield come to an end.
During his time at Liverpool, Robertson formed a solid partnership on the Reds’ left wing with Mane. The duo made 203 appearances together, with Robertson providing nine assists to his now-former team-mate.
With Liverpool struggling to reach the heights of last season’s Premier League title bid and run to the Champions League final, questions have been asked over whether they are missing Mane’s quality in the team. Robertson was posed this question while speaking on BBC Radio 5Live, via the Mail.
“To be honest, no,” Robertson responded.
“Don’t get me wrong, I had a fantastic relationship with Sadio in terms of me and him down the left-hand side for five years. He was a joy to play with, every game.
“I loved playing with him, we linked really well. He helped me going back, the way I helped him going forward.
“And yeah we linked up really well. When he left, there was probably no-one more gutted than me because of the relationship we had.
“But we’ve got fantastic players that can play in their positions. We brought in Darwin [Nunez], who has been really good to start. We’ve got Luis Diaz who has obviously been injured and re-injured and things like that, which is difficult. Jots [Diogo Jota] can play there, who’s got injured.
“We have been a little bit unlucky with injuries, I think once we get them back fully fit then yeah. “Look, Sadio was a wonderful player, a Liverpool legend but he wanted to go and he went to Bayern Munich and we wish him all the best.
