Liverpool Ignore Calls for a New Left-back

Posted on August 26, 2016 at 10:18 pm

Alberto Moreno has had a torrid start to the Premier League season. Not only does he have the media and fans on his back after his last two performances, he’s now been dropped by Jurgen Klopp and replaced with James Milner. His big mistake came against Arsenal when he nearly cost Liverpool the match, but he’s not convinced in his cameo appearances since. Moreno is an out and out left-back so it can’t do his confidence any good to see that Jurgen Klopp would rather have Milner play in his position. Moreno’s biggest attribute is his speed but it’s only caused him to make rash decisions lately, and he’ll need to work hard on the training field to get his place back in the team. It’s suprising to see Klopp pick Milner though rather than buying a new left-back, so it will be interesting to see how the season unfolds.
