Joining Liverpool from Sevilla in 2014, Alberto Moreno was brought in to solve a left-back problem which seemed to orbit the club since the departure of John Arne Riise.

Moreno’s early performances in a Liverpool shirt were bright. The young defender looked assured vs Manchester City before teasing that Brendan Rodgers could have found the next Jordi Alba.

This goal after a 60 yard run at White Hart Lane made the £12million price look like a steal.

Moreno’s pace and attacking tenacity provided a threat going forward. He showed glimpses of this at Liverpool, but at the same time, one of his funniest moments in a Liverpool shirt has to be the famous strike against West Brom.

It was an important game which fans can look back on and smile now that we’re out of the phase of fighting for the top four. We imagine he still laughs himself when looking back at this one… ‘Unbelievable Jeff!’

The Redmen TV’s match rating of ‘3’ was probably justified for this one, sorry Alberto!

Away from some defensive mistakes which all players can be guilty of, it was clear throughout his five-year contract that Moreno understood what it meant to play for Liverpool Football Club.

Whether he was in the starting XI or on the bench, Alberto always gave 100% – and his personality in the dressing room didn’t change. A warm character who would undoubtedly play a big part in helping the squad through the tougher times they faced. A true team player who was always smiling.

Moreno deserves game-time, which means, sadly, it is the right time to move on. Perhaps Jurgen Klopp’s system wasn’t the best fit, but it’s clear that his skills could flourish elsewhere; especially where a team deploys wing-backs.

Whether the defender’s career continues in the Premier League or back in Europe, Liverpool fans will always appreciate Moreno’s time at the club. In a period where footballers can feel out of touch, Alberto reminded us that all is not lost.

From sharing the lows in Basel and Kiev to the highs in Madrid, gracias Alberto. Buena suerte!
