“I actually felt very emotional when I heard for the first time “You’ll Never Walk Alone” at Anfield," said Moreno as he reflects on his opening months on Merseyside.

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has been talking about settling into life on Merseyside following his £12 million move from Sevilla in the summer. 

Moreno has made an immediate impression amongst the fans at Anfield, scoring a wonder goal during only his second appearance for the club in a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

He has shown he likes to get forward and was described as a 'flyer' by captain Steven Gerrard earlier on in the season.

In an interview with the Liverpool Echo, Moreno has been speaking about settling into life at the club following a summer where the deal to bring him to Merseyside seemed on, then off, and was eventually back on again. He also spoke about the Liverpool supporters and the emotion of hearing You'll Never Walk Alone.

He said: “Last season, when the rumours started, my agent and my father told me to forget about them, and made sure I kept focused on Sevilla.

“Then when the season was over, that was when negotiations really moved forward. That was when I started to think about Liverpool. I was always thinking the move was going to happen, and I was happy with that.”He added: “My first week here was the toughest. It was all different for me; different place, different weather, different language.

“But since then, I have settled in very well. It is helpful having all the Spanish players here, the likes of [Javier] Manquillo, Suso and Jose Enrique."

The Spanish contingent at the club seems to have helped Moreno and Manquillo settle into the side pretty quickly. Despite being left out of the side for the trip to Loftus Road on Sunday, Moreno is expected to replace Enrique in the starting line-up for the crucial clash with Real Madrid, who the former Sevilla star didn't expect to come up against so early into his Reds' career.

The 22-year-old was linked with a move to the European Champions but had his heart set on a move to Liverpool, and seems to have a lot of affection for the club's fans.

He added: “I have no words to describe the Liverpool supporters. They’ve been very supportive with me, and their passion is amazing.

“I actually felt very emotional when I heard for the first time “You’ll Never Walk Alone” at Anfield. That was a very special moment for me. It will be the same on Wednesday I’m sure.”

Words like that are only likely to make any bond Moreno has with the fans so far all the more stronger.
