Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has insisted that he will never be happy with playing second fiddle to Alberto Moreno at Anfield.
The 23-year-old joined the Reds from Hull City during the summer, and has made three first-team appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season.
Despite playing 180 minutes of Premier League football for his new club, the Scotland international is yet to feature in the Champions League due to Moreno’s presence.
It had been suggested in some quarters that Robertson, who is valued at £7m by transfermarkt.co.uk, would purely be a rotation option for Liverpool, but the full-back has vowed to nail-down a regular spot in Klopp’s first XI.
Robertson told Liverpool’s official website:
“If you’re sitting on the bench or sitting in the stand then you have to believe that you can change things.
“If you don’t think that then what’s the point of being here because you’re just happy to sit on the bench or in the stands.
“I don’t want to be here to just play second fiddle or just be happy to be on the bench, that’s never been in my nature and it never will be.”
Liverpool will look to build on last weekend’s 3-2 win over Leicester City in the Premier League when they visit Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds will enter the clash with the Magpies off the back of a 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday night, where Robertson failed to make the bench.
