Former Arsenal and Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said he can’t believe one of his ex-team-mates is a professional footballer after training with them.
The 30-year-old midfielder has labeled a surprising player as one of the worst at a training exercise known as ‘Rondo’.
Oxlade-Chamberlain reckons Liverpool’s star left-back Andy Robertson may have been the worst player he’s ever played a rondo with.
The Scot is one of the best full-backs in the Premier League but his former team-mate described him as “disgusting” to watch during training.
In conversation with the Tubes and Ange Golf Life YouTube channelOxlade-Chamberlain said, “Yes, he’s possibly the worst I’ve ever played a rondo with.”
“You’re watching him do a rondo… I don’t know how he can play football so well. Honestly, it’s disgusting to look at. And I say that with my chest in front of the camera.”
“Honestly, I tell him all the time. He’ll admit it, he’s terrible in a rondo! His hips don’t move well, so he falls over with every stretch.
“He’s just not nice in a rondo! He has no flair in a rondo.”
The Ox has just signed for Turkish club Besiktas after his contract at Liverpool expired.
The former Gunner has signed a three-year deal for the club and could make his debut this weekend when the Black Eagles take on Pendikspor in the Super Lig.
