Video: Jurgen Klopp Still Has 100% Trust in Alberto Moreno Despite Sevilla Collapse

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed under-fire defender Alberto Moreno, claiming he still trusts him “100%” despite a poor showing against Sevilla in the Champions League.

The Reds held a 3-0 lead at half-time against their La Liga opponents on Tuesday.

However, a second-half collapse saw Liverpool surrender their lead, with the game eventually finishing 3-3 at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.

Moreno was at fault as he conceded a penalty deep in injury time to gift-wrap and unlikely point for Sevilla and ex-Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane called it a moment of “pure madness” from the 25-year-old.

Unsurprisingly Klopp refused to throw Moreno under the bus with a big Premier League clash with Chelsea on the horizon.

However, fans will surely be surprised to hear of the amount of faith the manager still has in the under-performing former Sevilla player:

It will be interesting to see how Klopp picks his players up after such a demoralising draw in Europe, especially with the Premier League champions set to visit Anfield tomorrow evening.
