Andy Robertson says he is fit enough to play for Liverpool this weekend against Leicester City. The left-back had some injury troubles during the international break as Scotland managed to claim a ticket for the European Championship next summer by beating Serbia. In the following games Robertson wasn’t fit enough to play and his absence raised concerns about his fitness.
“Yeah, I feel fit, feel ready to go,” Robertson told Liverpool’s official website. “I think I just got a tighter hamstring than usual against Man City, first and foremost. Then obviously the game on Thursday for Scotland was a huge one and 120 minutes and penalties had taken its toll on me. Sunday, I wasn’t ready and just took a bit more time to recover from the game.”
“But there weren’t any real concerns about it. It was just the [risk] of doing anything worse to the hamstring was quite high on Sunday and the manager had made the call not to play me. Wednesday, I was good to go. Now I’m ready to go for Sunday, I feel fully fit, I feel ready. I know some people were quite concerned but I suppose with the amount of injuries we’ve had, people have become used to it. But I’m fully fit and ready to go.”
