Moreno delivers Klopp insight

Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno has revealed his relationship with manager Jurgen Klopp has been "strange" at times.

The Spain international featured regularly during Klopp's first season in charge at Anfield but found himself out of favour during the 2016-17 campaign, starting just two Premier League matches as midfielder James Milner was preferred at left-back.

The arrival of Scotland international Andy Robertson during the summer had been expected to limit Moreno's first-team opportunities further this term, but he has instead featured on a regular basis.

The 25-year-old has now revealed that his relationship with Klopp has been odd due to his periods in and out of the team, but insists he is currently enjoying a close bond with the German.

“It has been strange,” Moreno told Marca. “He arrived and I played every game, then at the start of the next season I disappeared. When I saw James Milner, a right footed midfielder, at left-back I knew something was happening. He did not give me any explanations.

“It is a totally different relationship. He even speaks to me in Spanish sometimes. He’s helping me a lot and I think it shows. I’m a more mature player with better defensive awareness.”
