While Robertson has not specifically shared what his training routine and diet plans are like when he’s preparing for his upcoming matches with his team Liverpool, it’s already a given checklist for them as professional sports athletes. They surely wouldn’t want to hit the field without strict preparations and training as it can hugely impact their performance in the game both as an individual player and as a team.
In an article published on May 29, 2019, Robertson revealed that during his debut with Liverpool, he worked really hard in training to learn everything and to understand what his manager wanted from his fullbacks. Though he has not openly talked about his exact workout parameters to stay fit, healthy, and always on-the-go for his matches, one can guess that he’s probably been following his training and diet routine as a professional football player. A bunch of specific workout executions must be done in order for a football player to improve his speed, agility, and the body’s ability to perform cutting movements since these are some of the most important skills to master when playing football.
