Liverpool star Alberto Moreno shares difficulty working under Brendan Rodgers

Alberto Moreno has become a new player under Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno says it was tough working with former manager Brendan Rodgers as he often found himself out of the first-team picture, the Mirror report.

The Spanish fullback was signed by Rodgers as he joined the Reds from Sevilla in the summer of 2014.

However, despite an impressive start to his Liverpool career, Moreno soon found himself out of the first-team picture as Rodgers often switched to a back three in his attempt to turn things around.

Nowadays, the former Sevilla man is happy featured as part of a back four under Jurgen Klopp, with Moreno telling reporters ahead of his side’s trip to Villarreal how he is in one of his finest moments.

“It was hard at first with Brendan (Rodgers). He didn’t seem to count on me much. I trained, I was 100% and didn’t play much,” Moreno explained to the Mirror.

“That’s now in the past. I’m working with Jurgen Klopp, he’s put his trust in me and now I’m in one of my best moments.”

The 23-year-old came under heavy criticism from a section of the club’s support as well as the media following his mediocre form coupled with high-profile errors earlier in the campaign.

Moreno, an attacking fullback who loves to get forward, often found himself way out position and vulnerable to sharp counter-attacks which often led to the opposition scoring on the break.

Yet, in recent months, he has remained more disciplined and that has aided his game with Liverpool going undefeated in 90 minutes in their last 14 matches in all competitions in which Moreno has featured.
