Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claims that the problem with left-back Alberto Moreno is that he is “sometimes he’s a little bit too passionate in defending”.
The Spaniard was dropped after the opening Premier League game against Arsenal ended 4-3, with James Milner taking his place.
With Milner ill, Moreno returned against Crystal Palace on Saturday and contributed with an assist in a performance full of running.
“There was never a doubt about Alberto,” said the man who dropped him.
“He is a young player and needs to learn a lot of things. Sometimes he’s a little bit too passionate in defending. But he is still young and can learn things.
“You see he is quick, has a good left foot, a good attitude and runs up and down, up and down. It’s nice for a manager to work with boys like this. We have to work together and we do – all good.”
