Alberto Moreno is unhappy with the way he has been treated by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and is keen on a January departure from Anfield, according to AS.
Moreno has been honest about his frustration at being behind Andy Robertson in the pecking order and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, he will be free to negotiate with potential suitors next month.
He said: “I didn’t like the way Klopp favoured Robertson – now we’re at the same level – I thought I deserved another chance.
“I kept training but it was always Robertson, Robertson, Robertson… So I wasn’t very happy with how the coach handled it.”
Moreno appears to be a popular member of the squad but Klopp cannot really abide outbursts such as Moreno’s, especially from players who are not central to his plans.
James Milner deputised ably for Andy Robertson in the second half against Burnley recently – doing a better job than Moreno, who was substituted as the Reds went in search of the win – and could take up the slack if Liverpool don’t replace the Spaniard mid-season.
And selling Moreno now would offer Liverpool the chance to get some money back in for a player who can leave for nothing in the summer and is showing no signs of wanting to sign a new deal.
