What Trent Alexander-Arnold said when asked why Andy Robertson deleted his Twitter account

Trent Alexander-Arnold has defended his Liverpool team-mate Andy Robertson after he deleted his Twitter account.

Robertson deactivated his social media account after supposedly receiving abuse from fans online.

The Scotland international gave away a penalty in Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat at Napoli in the Champions League this week.

And Alexander-Arnold has defended Robertson, claiming he has the backing of the Liverpool squad.

“He’s mentally a really strong character, so I’m sure whatever reason he had for doing that was for the best for him,” Alexander-Arnold said.

“So, I think whenever we see each other next, it will be obviously to see how he is, make sure that nothing is too bad.

“I think all the lads would have texted him and spoken to him, to make sure everything is OK.”

The Reds lost 2-0 at Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Goals from Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente were the difference in Naples.

Jurgen Klopp was vocal after the defeat, claiming his Liverpool side’s decision making wasn’t good enough.

“We had not enough chances at the end, to be 100 per cent honest,” Klopp told BT Sport.

“We made decisions that were not right tonight and we have to accept the result.

“Very often it was the final ball which was not right. It was a bit because of the intensity of the game because it was wild.

“The last ball is the most difficult ball anyway and when you are not in the right physical circumstances then it is even more difficult.

“There were moments when we should have done better for sure.

“We were not happy at half time and wanted to change our counter-attack and spread the runs more.

“We lost the ball very often in the centre in the box when we played a one-two then it went in the other direction and they killed us. That was our problem tonight.”

Liverpool are back in action on Sunday against Chelsea in the Premier League.
