Sevilla fullback Alberto Moreno has revealed why he broke into tears following the agreement of his deal to sign for Liverpool in a £12 million fee.
22 year old Moreno has arrived at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground to complete the proposed deal.
The defender was pulled out of Sevilla’s side for their 2-0 defeat in the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid in Cardiff last night, and admitted leaving his home town club will be difficult.
“I am living a strange situation because I’m leaving the club of my life,” Moreno said.
“I was always aware of the two teams (trying) to agree. I never got into that but Sevilla have understood that Liverpool’s offer was good and I am going.
“(I have) many feelings together. What happened on the pitch, with the fans, will remain forever etched on me and I could not help but mourn because I did not expect it.
“First came the parting with colleagues, then with the fans…all very complicated.
“Liverpool are a great team and of course I’m super-motivated. I hope things go well.”
