Jan Vertonghen has described Liverpool’s Andy Robertson as being one of the best left-backs in Europe.
Robertson was part of Jurgen Klopp’s side who recently ended Tottenham Hotspur’s dreams of being crowned as champions of Europe for the first time in their history when they ran out as 2-0 winners during the final in Madrid.
Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld will once again come up against Robertson this evening when Belgium host Scotland in Group 1 of the Euro 2020 qualifiers at the Koning Boudewinjstadion this evening.
Belgium currently top the table with a maximum nine points from the opening three matches, while Scotland have won two of their three fixtures to date.
Vertonghen was full of praise for the 25-year-old Glaswegian who has enjoyed a meteoric rise in form since moving to Anfield from Hull City in July 2017.
The Spurs central defender insists that he will not be out for revenge and credited Liverpool for winning the trophy.
He told the BBC: “He’s been unbelievable this season,”
“He’s probably one of the best left-backs in Europe at the moment.
“He played a great final and did so well in the Premier League. All those assists and his overall contribution, he’s a great player.
“It’s not about revenge for me but he played well in the final, Liverpool did well and if you win the Champions League you deserve to win but it will be a different game on Tuesday.”
