He seems willing to take all the commensurate flak.“I feel extra responsibility when we come off the pitch as I have to help lift the boys and all the staff,” Robertson said, according to Daily Mail.“Everyone was down after that performance on Thursday. Fans can react negatively to me, that is all part and parcel of it. Since I was made captain, it has happened a bit more as they see me as a scapegoat.”Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“I can take it on the chin.
