“I know I was useless last season” – Liverpool star gives emotional interview

ALBERTO MORENO admits he thought he was ‘useless’ at Liverpool last season but has never thought about leaving the club.

Moreno endured a campaign to forget last term, struggling for form and being widely criticised in the brief performances he did make.

But the Spanish defender has been far better so are this season, enjoying a run in the Jurgen Klopp’s side despite the summer arrival of Andy Robertson.

The 25-year-old is delighted with his improvement after his difficult year.

He told IBTimes: “Last season was bad. There was a moment in which my mind said: ‘Alberto, whatever you do will be useless’.

“But it is always said that new year [it’s time for] a new life so I started the new season with that mentality.

“In the pre-season, following Robertson’s arrival, I looked myself strong, with a lot of confidence.

“In the world of football one day you are down and the following day you are up. You never know.

“The best thing to do is living the day to day, keep working and keep improving.”

Despite his struggles last season, Moreno says he never considered leaving Merseyside.

He added: “It’s true there were a lot offers at the end of the season but my intention was always to stay at Liverpool.

“Klopp was very honest. He couldn’t promise me anything and told me that they were going to sign a new left-back.

“But I wanted to play for Liverpool. It’s a great club and I could see myself playing here.”

Moreno has been called into Spain’s national squad for their upcoming friendlies against Costa Rica and Russia.

He started Liverpool’s 4-1 win over West Ham at the weekend and will likely do so again against Southampton next time out.
