Latest snub by Jurgen Klopp surely spells the end of Alberto Moreno’s Liverpool career

James Milner is set to start at left-back in the Champions League.

Liverpool are currently preparing for their Champions League clash with Portuguese side FC Porto.

The Reds welcome Porto to Anfield for the first leg on Tuesday night and will be hoping to give themselves an advantage ahead of the away fixture.

But Jurgen Klopp has a selection dilemma ahead of the game. Andrew Robertson is the first-choice left-back but he is suspended for this clash.

And according to The Daily Star, James Milner is set to take Robertson’s place at left-back in the starting line-up.

 

This will be a real kick in the teeth for Alberto Moreno, who is struggling for game time at Liverpool. He looks destined for the exit door, especially after this latest snub.

Moreno’s natural position is left-back but Klopp seems to prefer Milner – a veteran, right-footed central midfielder – instead.

It has been another difficult season for the Spaniard on Merseyside as he has managed just four appearances.

With just eight Champions League minutes and two Premier League matches to his name in 2018/19, Moreno needs to leave Liverpool.

The 26-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and is set to leave on a free transfer in the summer. With Klopp not even seeing him as the back-up left-back, Moreno’s future should be completely clear.
