Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno to be awarded freedom of the city of Seville
- By Football Burp
Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno is to be awarded the freedom of the city of Seville after his latest virtuoso performance for Sevilla FC.
Moreno conceded a crucial free kick and penalty as the Reds went on to blow a 3-0 half-time lead in what is already being dubbed “a reverse Istanbul”.
The errors, which saw the Champions League clash end 3-3, follow on from his match-winning turn for the La Liga side in the 2016 Europa League final.
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Jürgen Klopp remained philosophical.
He said: “I’m delighted for Alberto – Seville’s a great city, he should enjoy having the freedom of it.
“On the other hand, I’m pretty steamed at his performance. Now I’ve got to drop him for a whole season all over again.
“Which sucks for his career, but at least he’ll get to experience what Seville oranges are all about.
“They’re just really great oranges.”
He added: “Wait, you mean to tell me Alberto actually comes from Seville?
