The Liverpool left-back, who was an unused substitute against Stoke City at the weekend after losing his place in the team to new signing Joe Gomez, discussed the difficulties of adapting to life in English football as well as the team’s goals for the new campaign.
He was also asked about last season – specifically his first trip to Anfield as a spectator, which came this time last year against Southampton, and his first goal, which he scored against Tottenham two weeks later.

Speaking about his memories of his first season at Anfield, he said: “[It was] unbelievable. My first game was against Southampton, I still could not play, but I will never forget. The ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ has to be experienced. This crowd reminds me of the [one in] Sevilla: they give everything for the team.
“The goal I scored against Tottenham in my second game. That moment I have it recorded. I started at midfield and just know that I got tired of running!”
Moreno signed too late to feature in the game against Southampton and instead made his debut against Manchester City. However, his first notable contribution came during our 3-0 win at White Hart Lane, when his superb strike added to the goals scored by Raheem Sterling and Steven Gerrard.
Since that moment, it’s been something of a mixed twelve months on Merseyside for the 23-year-old, who despite impressing for much of his first season in England did have to endure the fallout of making a couple of key mistakes.
Discussing the differences between playing in England and Spain, he continued: “This league is very physical, (lots of) twists and turns. You face very rapid and incisive rivals. You have to be extremely careful. Spain, however, is more tactical and positional.”
As for this season, he’s determined to help us win our first trophy in more than three years. He added: “Our aim is to get into the top four, to return to play the Champions League, and lift a title.
“Liverpool has (gone too) long without winning anything, from 2011-12, and that is our dream. The people deserve it. We are a young team, good players have come and if the team well together, we can achieve beautiful things.
“Scousers want to win everything. It is very difficult because Chelsea, City, United and Arsenal have more budget, but do not give up anything.”
