Robertson already eyeing up more trophies as Liverpool crowned champions

Andy Robertson says he wants to finish his career at Liverpool and is already eyeing more trophies after the club were crowned as Premier League champions.

Liverpool were crowned as champions of English football for the first time in three decades following Manchester City’s defeat to Chelsea on Thursday night, the Reds possessing an unassailable 23-point lead at the top of the division with a record seven games remaining.

The club’s title triumph follows on from last seasons Champions League victory in what is a glittering period for the Merseyside club, with Robertson outlining his ambition to win more silverware and remain at Anfield for the remainder of his career.

“That’s my plan,” Robertson told talkSPORT. “Whether I’m good enough at 33 or 34 to continue to do that, we’ll wait and see.

“But I don’t want to go anywhere, this club is so special to me in a short space of time. My family love it, I love it and I don’t want to go anywhere else.

“There’s no better team in the world just now than Liverpool, and why would any of us want to leave?

“We’ve got a young squad and we’ve got to be looking at the next five years to try and add more and more trophies.

“To start with the big two is always good and it gives us the freedom to go and add to it now, because the feeling of being champions is amazing and we don’t want it to be a one-off, we want that all the time. That’s what will drive us forward next season and the seasons after.”

Robertson reserved special praise for club captain Jordan Henderson, the midfielder having enjoyed the best season of his career and amongst the favourites for the PFA Player of the Year award.

The Scotland international believes Henderson would be fully deserving of that individual accolade, praising the 30-year-old’s consistency and ability to get the best from his teammates.

“He represents us all,” Robertson said. “He is so consistent, he drives us on in training every single day.

“The guy has been unbelievable this season. He deserves Player of the Year in my opinion, with what he has done and how he has driven our team to success.”

Robertson also lauded the contribution of manager Jurgen Klopp who became the man to finally end the club’s title-drought, admitting the German has become somewhat of a father figure to the side during their recent period of silverware success.

“He is the dad to all of us. He can have a laugh but he knows when to get the lads going. He knows when to motivate us and how to motivate us.”

Liverpool next return to action with a trip to face second-placed Manchester City next Thursday, whilst the club will be presented with the Premier League trophy following their final home fixture of the season against Chelsea.
