Liverpool left-back and summer signing, Alberto Moreno, has been saying all the right things as he looks toward the upcoming season for the Reds, reports the Express. The young defender has his eyes set on winning the Champions’ League, as the Merseyside team enter back into the competition during this campaign.
Moreno made his debut for Brendan Rodgers’ men during the three-one loss to Manchester City, a game in which he was at fault for the Sky Blues’ first goal. However, he was on hand to score a spectacular solo goal during his second appearance, as he outsprinted half of the Tottenham Hotspur team to score past Hugo Lloris.
The 22 year old was bought by Rodgers for a bargain £12 million, after summer-long negotiations with his former side, Sevilla. The player was visibly moved to tears as he bid farewell to the La Liga side and their fans, but has received an overwhelmingly positive reception at Anfield.
‘You realise that it’s something very different. You look to the stands and they’re packed. So many people singing ‘You’ll never walk alone’ is incredible,’ said Moreno of his new club and new supporters. ‘They live for football, they’re so passionate and I’m honoured to be part of the joy they feel when we win a game.’
The young full-back is ambitious as well, and he is looking to achieve immediate success at Liverpool. The Reds last lifted the European Cup in 2005, but they will be looking to repeat the feat in 2015. ‘Playing in the Champions League is going to be amazing. It’s all new for me and I’m really looking forward to it,’ said Moreno. ‘I saw the trophy at Anfield and I got goosebumps. Hopefully we can win it this year. Hopefully that day will come.’
