The answer is, no I haven’t yet and it’s not good enough.”Last September, the Ox attempted clarified the terms of the pair’s bet by saying he’d place Robertson’s shirt NEXT to six-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi’s.At the time he said: “I do have a deal with him about assists.“The deal was if he gets 10 Premier League assists this season, I will get a framed Andrew Robertson shirt to put in my house.“And I’ll put it next to [Lionel] Messi”s.”Jordan Henderson makes sure shy Minamino didn’t miss out on trophy celebrations as Liverpool captain shows class Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017center_img 8 MOST DANGEROUS RAINS of All Time | TOP 10 INTERESTING Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heels Most awesome bullfighting festival Source: Soccer – thesun.co.uklast_img read more
