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.


He left Liverpool after six years at the club, having joined from Arsenal for £35million in 2017.

The strong midfielder made 146 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring 18 goals and providing a further 15 assists.
