Jurgen Klopp takes the blame for Alberto Moreno's horror show against Sevilla

However, Moreno had greatly impressed his eccentric German coach - as well as the Liverpool fans - with a string of excellent performances in the early stages of the 2017/18 season. I could have done different things and obviously it was hard in Seville with all the circumstances; everyone was talking to him like a family member.

Former Manchester United captain Keane didn't hold back in his assessment of the Liverpool left-back following their Champions League collapse on Tuesday night.

Speaking on ITV about Moreno, Keane said: 'What he's doing for the penalty, you wouldn't see a child doing it. "It's pure madness for an worldwide player to do that", Keane said on ITV.


Moreno looked to be heading for an Anfield exit back in the summer when manager Jurgen Klopp spent around £10m to bring Andy Robertson in from Hull. This has nothing to do with team shape or mentality.

And speaking to reporters ahead of Saturday's clash with Chelsea at Anfield, Klopp admitted he was at fault for fielding the 25-year-old in a hard atmosphere.

"I know it's a team game, but sometimes you have to point the finger and say "you're killing us, you're costing us".


Another Liverpool player who has been the subject of recent speculation is Daniel Sturridge, who could seek to leave Anfield in January, having played only a limited role this season, per Darren Lewis in the Mirror. I told him I still trust him 100%.

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. In a lot of situations we were deep as a group and we didn't play football anymore.

We've seen two sides to Liverpool this season - the scintillating attack and the leaky defence, and Keane went on to insist that the team simply doesn't have what it takes to challenge for a trophy because of its shortcomings. You've got to show why you were so good to get the move to Liverpool.
