Klopp trusts Moreno ´100 per cent´ despite Sevilla shocker

After that performance, Moreno's Anfield career was essentially postponed, with makeshift left-back James Milner replacing him in Klopp's starting line-up for the majority of the following campaign.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted he must shoulder some of the blame for Alberto Moreno's performance against Sevilla.

Bellamy said: "Alberto Moreno has always made mistakes and everyone, including myself, has at times questioned his defensive ability".

If Roy Keane had some pent-up frustration after the Republic of Ireland failed to make it to the World Cup, he let it out on Liverpool - and Alberto Moreno in particular. I could have done different things. We had the ball around the third goal - it was between two players and one reacted quicker and we give them the ball back.

Reminding Liverpool fans why they turned on him, Moreno was dismal against Sevilla and was hauled off after 66 minutes. I am 100 per cent responsible.

With Liverpool 3-0 up, Moreno gave away a soft free-kick from which Sevilla pulled back their first goal, then handed his former club a penalty when he miscontrolled on the edge of the box and tripped Wissam Ben Yedder.

Can joined Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2014 after the Premier League club activated his £9.75m release clause.

I know the boys better than you do and I know that they really want it but they are choosing the wrong tools.

"There are a lot of people over there he knows, saying "hello".

"[If you lose] one, two or three percent of concentration and come a little bit too late and that's how it started".

Klopp suggested that despite Moreno's errors in Seville, he has no plans to take him out of the firing line again, insisting that the 25-year-old still has his trust and support. How you concede the goals is not important anymore after the game, only for the analysis but not for anything else. "We know how we came into the situations, that's how we change".
