Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes that Andy Robertson’s late yellow card in the match against Bayern Munich was ‘silly’. The left-back received a yellow card for a stoppage-time tackle on Leon Goretzka. This yellow card meant that Robertson would be unavailable for Liverpool’s first quarter-final leg. Just like their first leg of the last 16, Liverpool will be without an integral defender for the first leg of the quarter-final.
Speaking of Robertson’s yellow card, Klopp said, “It was silly but he is still a young boy. We should not worry about things like that though.”
Robertson’s absence is a big blow for Liverpool as the Scotsman is an integral player for the team. In Robertson’s absence, Jurgen Klopp can field Alberto Moreno. Moreno has made four appearances for the Reds this season. He started two Premier League matches against Burnley and Cardiff the League Cup and FA Cup games against Chelsea and Wolves respectively.
Another option Klopp might have is use James Milner as a left-back. Milner has sporadically played as a left-back for Liverpool. Last season, the former England international played as a left-back in a Champions League match against Spartak Moscow and provided three assists. Provided Klopp uses Milner as the left-back, he can start bring Naby Keita or Adam Lallana in central midfield.
