Liverpool Full-Back Alberto Moreno Rewarded With Spain Call-Up Following Impressive Form


Liverpool's Spanish full-back has been rewarded with a chance to prove himself on an international stage following his improved form for the Reds. 

Moreno was subject to a lot of criticism last season after being a part of a Liverpool defence that continued to leak goals. His time at Anfield has been clouded with doubts over his defensive capabilities, with many preferring for Klopp to use him as winger. 


The 25-year-old's future was in doubt over the summer, as Napoli showed interest and Klopp brought in former Hull City man Andy Robertson as his potential replacement.

However, the boss gave Moreno a chance to prove himself yet again throughout pre-season and at the start of this season, and his performances have led to him cementing his place in the team.

The Spaniard has started eight of Liverpool's opening 10 Premier League games, as well as recording three assists in just four Champions League starts, helping the Reds to the top of their group. 

This form has led to his inclusion in the Spanish national side for their friendlies against Costa Rica and Russia, alongside former Liverpool men Pepe Reina, Suso, Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas.

The former Sevilla man has claimed that his performances have improved due to his love for Liverpool and desire to win while wearing the shirt.
