Moreno’s classy farewell

Alberto Moreno has left Liverpool after five years at the club.

The Spanish defender’s contract expired on Monday and he is now a free agent.

The 26-year old penned a farewell message on his Instagram account…

Hi Reds,

Life goes in cycles, and mine at my beloved Liverpool FC has drawn to an end. Upon reaching this point, I would like to thank the entire Liverpool family; my dear teammates, with whom I have shared five marvellous years and who I will forever think of as family, and, of course, the owners, directors, coaching staff, doctors, physios, kitmen, and each and every person at the club.

Thank you for making me a better footballer and, above all, a better person; for helping me to fulfil one of my childhood dreams by winning the Champions League and, in doing so, become a small part of the history of this great club.

My gratitude too to the city, which embraced me as one of its own from day one and which will live on in my memory whenever I look at my son, Alberto Jr, a Liverpudlian himself.

Finally, a very special thank you to the club’s superb fans, who always supported me. I wish you all at Liverpool FC the greatest successes. Wherever life takes me from here, I will always carry you in my heart and forever be a fan.

You’ll Never Walk Alone!

Alberto Moreno

He may not have been the most popular player with some fans, but he played his part at a time when the club’s fortunes started to turn around and we thank him for all his efforts over the last five years.
