Liverpool defender hands Jurgen Klopp big boost ahead of Champions League final vs Spurs


Liverpool received a major boost on Sunday with Andy Robertson returning to the starting XI against Wolves after coming off injured against Barcelona five days earlier.

The Scotland left-back was the break from the giants after picking up a calf problem at the amazing comeback at Anfield.

Spending on June, the 25-year-old was back in the weekend and managed to play 84 minutes.

Speaking to Liverpool's official website about injury, Robertson claimed he still had problems with the 2-0 win but the rest of the final will give him ample time to fully recover.

"It wasn't the best on Sunday and I could feel it during the game, but I wanted to play and desperate to get out there," he said.

"The adrenaline kept me going and the fact of a lot of us having played through pain, not just me.

"Luckily now we've got a couple of weeks to recover and get our bodies right – and we know we'll be fresh as we can go into the final."

Wanda Metropolitano Stadium until Saturday, June 1.

Andy Robertson had to come off against Barcelona two to injury

Robertson and his team will switch off over the next few days to fully prepare for the final showpiece.

"It´s so important, to be able to switch off and spend some time with your family, just trying to forget about football because it is an intense period of time," added the Scotland captain.

"If you can even switch off for two or three days then it's perfect.

"I am looking for the final, we can not help that, but we will try and switch off as we can and then we will go full steam ahead into the next couple of weeks. "
