Klopp backs Alberto Moreno - 'I told him I trust him 100%'

Klopp backs Alberto Moreno - 'I told him I trust him 100%'

Klopp substituted Moreno shortly after and the full-back's performance was heavily criticised post-match, but the Liverpool manager claims full responsibility for his player's display.

Moreno gave away the free-kick for the first then let Wissam Ben Yedder coast in front of him to head home before he fouled the same man to give the hosts a penalty soon after. I could have done different things and obviously it was hard in Seville with all the circumstances - everyone was talking to him like talking to him like a family member.

"I'm a Liverpool player though and every time I wear this jersey I want to win and I'm not concerned about anything else".

"What he's doing for the penalty, you wouldn't see a child doing it", Keane said on ITV. "It's pure madness for an worldwide player to do that", Keane said whilst on punditry duty for ITV. This has nothing to do with team shape or mentality.

However, Moreno regressed alarmingly in the second-half of Tuesday's 3-3 draw with Sevilla in the Champions League as Klopp's Reds carelessly frittered away a three-goal lead. He left there, a lot of people are still there which he knows well - if it's 1,2,3% of concentration - my responsibility would have been to think about the line up, or a change, or a change earlier.

Ahead of Liverpool's clash with Chelsea on Saturday, Klopp leapt to the left-back's defence, saying he could have made a change earlier in Andalusia.

The debacle against Sevilla in midweek was a return to form, though, with Moreno at fault for two of his former side's goals.

Things were beginning to look up for the player, but the shocker - in which he was responsible for at least two of the three goals - has put back that progress.

"I told him I still trust him 100 percent, for me the game is over", he added.

He'll need more than a few good months to bring around the haters, and until that point every time Moreno makes a mistake he'll get the same response from those who don't back him.
