Alberto Moreno targets silverware following summer revamp

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool defender Albero Moreno believes the club can achieve 'beautiful things' if their summer signings gel with the squad.

The Reds have made a number of high-profile additions in the transfer window, with Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez all making the switch to Merseyside and consequently featuring in their opening weekend victory against Stoke.

With so many new players featuring it's plausible to think that Brendan Rodgers' side might face some initial struggles, but Moreno is hoping things come together quickly and the club can challenge for silverware this season, as well as a place in the Champions League.

"Our aim is to enter the top four - to return to play in the Champions League - and to win a title," he told Marca, according to the official Liverpool website.

"Liverpool has gone a long time without winning something, from 2011/12, and that is our dream. The fans deserve it. We are a young team, some good players have arrived and, if we combine well, we can achieve beautiful things.

"The Scousers want to win everything"

Moreno also reflected on his first season at Anfield in the interview, admitting it was difficult to settle into life on Merseyside to begin with following the move from Sevilla.

The left-black also revealed that it was hard to adapt to the style of play in the Premier League compared to La Liga, with increased physicality and speed of play two areas of the game that are particularly different.

"Upon arriving I realised what a great club this is," he continued.

"The first year was difficult because of the language and change in surroundings, but I played 41 games, that is very good for my age at a club the size of Liverpool."

"Perhaps the defensive level [was hardest to adapt to]. This league is very physical, with a lot of up and down. You come up against very quick and incisive players.

"You have to be very careful because if you are not accustomed to it quickly you can come unstuck."

Moreno lost his starting spot to Gomez in the opening fixture at the Britannia Stadium, but will be hoping to force his way back into contention for games against Bournemouth and Arsenal in the coming weeks.
