Andy Robertson is hoping Liverpool can pile the pressure on Leicester City and their other Premier League rivals in the race for a top-four finish this season. Robertson faced the media ahead of that game and was asked if there was an extra incentive for the team because they may not be in the competition next season.
Andrew Robertson said: “To be honest, no. For us there’s a chance to win the biggest trophy in European football and that’s all we’re going for. Luckily we’ve had a bit of success in the last couple of years and we want to continue that. We want to not just rest on winning the trophies that we’ve already won – we want to win more. That’s our motivation, that’s our determination.”
On Premier League matters
Andrew Robertson added: “The top-four race and everything like that will take care of itself. We need to keep going in the league and keep trying to pick up points and hopefully the teams above us drop points. But for us, tomorrow night is just all about progressing to the semi-final because we’ve never looked too far ahead. We’re still a long, long way off the final and even that becoming a possibility. So all I’m worried about is try to get into the semi-finals of the Champions League because I know how special they can be. We want to be a part of this tournament, we want to try and get through to the next round – that’s all the determination. Unfortunately, we’re coming up against one of the most experienced teams at it and their determination is the exact same. So we need to be at our best and we need to hope that we can take any chances given to us tomorrow night.”
