Football fraternity condoles demise of former Liverpool striker Michael Robinson

Share

I have tried to ring him a couple of times in the last couple of weeks.

"I said 'Good player, I know him well".

"He was a big pal of mine and I've so many fond memories of being in his company", said the former Liverpool captain. Retired Spanish Formula One driver Pedro de la Rosa said: "I will never forget how much he liked to talk about F1, mesmerising you with his stories". He's been fighting this for a number of years now. "Then he took himself off to Spain, played at Osasuna and created a media life for himself out there". He used to go for these long Spanish lunches. He got back to his office, because he'd been out for lunch with Seve Ballesteros. Half a dozen people stopped him and asked him for his autograph and only one asked Seve, so he was rejoicing in that. "We played cricket together in our teens".

Earlier in the day, former team-mate of both Lawrenson and Robinson - Graeme Souness - had paid his own tribute.

"You'll never walk alone Michael".

Former Liverpool and Ireland striker Michael Robinson has passed away at the age of 61, confirmed a tweet from his official handle on Tuesday.

The family moved to Blackpool to run a boarding house; one night two men knocked on the door, one of whom, young Michael thought, looked like Bobby Charlton.

"He was the victor of the 2018 Vazquez Montalban International Journalism Award".

Robinson's family wrote on Twitter that we are very sadly informing you about Michael's death. "Our thoughts are with all of his loved ones at this extremely hard time". It was indeed the World Cup victor, who had just become manager of Second Division Preston North End, and they became Michael's first club, in 1975. "We join in the condolences to the family, friends and all those whom he leaves bereft of his talent".
