The Spanish defender believes the energetic approach of his new manager will suit his own style perfectly.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno says Jurgen Klopp’s energetic playing style will suit his own game perfectly.

Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers at Anfield last week following another slow start to the season for the Reds.

The German’s appointment has got everyone at the club excited, with an expectant fan base hoping that he can bring the fast and furious football his Borussia Dortmund sides played to Merseyside.

Moreno is hoping for a similar change, believing that the high-tempo approach will help to bring the best out of him.

“He has said to us that he wants an intense team – a team in which everybody has to run,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

”He wants us working together, he wants us to be a team all of the time, and I like this idea. I think it matches my way of playing. I am always aggressive, energetic and give my all, so it matches Klopp’s style of playing.”

The defender has also said that nobody at the club needed reminding of Klopp’s pedigree when he arrived at Anfield.

The German transformed Borussia Dortmund during his time in the Bundesliga, toppling the reign of Bayern Munich in that division to lead his side to back-to-back league titles.

He also guided his side to a Champions League final, in which they were beaten by Bayern, and Moreno is one of many impressed by the work he oversaw in Germany, hoping he can have a similar impact at Liverpool.

“He had so many great players but you need a good manager to manage those players,” added Moreno.

“That has been reflected in what Borussia Dortmund have achieved, which has been incredible. It caught the attention of Europe. Klopp did it very well during the time he was there and I hope he will do as well here as he did in Dortmund.”
