Robertson moved to Liverpool from Hull in July 2017 – a switch which raised plenty of eyebrows.
The Scot failed to break into the first-team initially, but then endeared himself to Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool fans with his will and relentless nature down the left flank.
Robertson has since been named his country’s captain and is a stalwart of the side which is consolidating a title challenge this season.
Robertson has revealed to Football Focus, however, that his first few months in Merseyside were a difficult time.After making 44 appearances for club and country the season before, Robertson found the competition with left-back Alberto Moreno.
“It was hard at the time as I was not used to not playing and it was something very new to me. I didn’t deal with it as well as I could,” he said.
“I was probably not the best to live with in the house, but it is hard because you are putting on a brave face on the training ground thinking you need to work hard to get in the team.
“But when you come home and start thinking about it and getting annoyed and frustrated, it goes into your family life.”Robertson was surprised by Liverpool’s interest following his performances for a relegated Hull City side.
“When you play for any club and you hear Liverpool are interested you get excited about it, and I was no different,” he continued.
“I managed to keep level-headed. I was very realistic about it.”
“[Klopp] played me in a couple of games and the frustrating thing was that I felt like I did quite well.“He said I did do well, but I still wasn’t quite adapted to his way of playing.”
Robertson has certainly adapted now, but admitted there were talks with Klopp about the difficult position he found himself in.
“It was just about being patient,” he said.
“I did have a few chats with the manager, but it was never crucial or make-or-break.”
