Jermaine Jenas has admitted that he cannot understand why Jurgen Klopp is not giving summer signing Andy Robertson a regular run in the first team at Liverpool.

The left-back signed for the Reds from Hull City in the summer transfer window as Klopp moved quickly to bolster his defensive options ahead of the new campaign.

However, the 23-year-old Scot has found his first team opportunities at Anfield to be limited so far this season, with the defender having only started two Premier League games for the Reds.

He has also notched up one appearance in the League Cup, but former midfielder Jenas feels that the Scotland international should be given a more regular run in the first team to prove himself to Klopp.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Jenas said: “I think Robertson is a really good player.

“When I’ve seen him play for Liverpool, he’s been their best player from an attacking point of view.

“But for whatever reason, Klopp doesn’t trust him yet. He brought Alberto Moreno back even though he was in Siberia at one stage. He wasn’t part of Klopp’s plans.”

Robertson will be hoping to be involved when the Reds return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Manchester United at Anfield.

The Reds head into the game looking to get back to winning ways after their 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at St James’ Park last time out.

Liverpool are currently in seventh place in the Premier League table and seven points behind leaders Manchester City.
