Alberto Moreno believes Liverpool’s supporters can play a key part in helping the club turn their season around after a difficult start.
The £12million summer signing from Sevilla has been one of the few new signings to impress so far this season, and admits he is loving life at his new club.
He said: “For me, these supporters are one of the few sets of fans – in fact the best – at really supporting and getting behind their team that I have seen at a football ground.
“It’s amazing and my hairs really stand on end every time I hear them cheering us on. I especially love the fact that in spite of these defeats we’ve had of late, they never stop or tire of supporting the team and are always there for us.
“I don’t think they’ll ever let us down. That’s why we really have to turn things around, for that set of supporters that we have, always driving us on, we have to do it for them.”
Moreno added: “Every time you do something good, or even when you make a mistake, they are always behind you clapping and encouraging you.
“As you leave the ground they always call out to you to sign an autograph for them. It’s something that players enjoy, and when I’m on the field I can tell how much they seem to like me, and I’m very grateful for that.
“To be totally honest, I am extremely happy here, I’m overjoyed with how things are going.
“It has really flown by. I think that’s important for a player, as it means that things are going well, you are playing regularly and performing quite well. I really hope that I can stay here for a long time to come.
“The language has been the thing I’ve struggled with the most. After that, my mum and dad are over here with me and so the days take care of themselves.
“Then I’m lucky enough to have my fellow Spaniards Jose Enrique, Suso and Javier Manquillo in the dressing room. When we leave Melwood we always arrange to meet up to have some lunch or a few games of FIFA.
“Everything is great here at Melwood, the facilities, my teammates, the manager; everything. I really couldn’t be happier here.”
