Alberto Moreno has become something of a forgotten man at Liverpool.

Gone are the days when he made the starting XI on a weekly basis and in are the days of playing second fiddle to Andrew Robertson, who continues to impress with each and every game.

Moreno certainly has his moments and Liverpool fans are aware of his qualities going forward, but the Spaniard has proven far too mistaken-prone to warrant a return to the side.

His recent criticism of Jurgen Klopp certainly won't have helped the situation either, with Moreno informing Cadena Ser: “I do not feel good, that is the truth.

“I hurt myself giving everything for this team and I think that when I came back from injury, I deserved an opportunity.

“The situation is normal for a lot of players but simply I did not like the way he [Klopp] has treated me, you can say that.

“Moving back to Spain is something I have thought about, I am tired of the cold here but I do not know about interests from other clubs."

Pretty strong words and perhaps a move to Spain will be even more likely after his performance against Wolves, a 2-1 defeat that saw the Reds crash out of the FA Cup.

Moreno's Wikipedia page

Liverpool fan website RushTheKop awarded him a 4/10 for his display, noting that he was 'ripped to shreds' and many hypothesised it could be his last game for the club.

So it's fair to say supporters feel pretty negatively about Moreno and although his performance wasn't as bad as some are making out, it won't give Robertson anything to worry about.

And one supporter has even taken it upon themselves to edit Moreno's Wikipedia page in the aftermath of the defeat.

Fans are starting to notice that his main description had the following sentence added to it: 'He retired from football on January 7th, 2019.'

That's got to sting - check out the proof and the reaction so far: 

He wasn't that bad, was he?

Moreno has delivered some questionable performances over the years, so it's perhaps a little harsh that the Wolves showing was deemed the one that should 'retire' him.

Of course, the comment is just a joke and Moreno has plenty of years in European football ahead of him.

Retiring from his spell with Liverpool seems a practical solution at the moment, however, because first-team opportunities are proving few and far between.

Whether that will come in the January transfer window or in the summer remains to be seen, but relations between player and club seem to be deteoriating. 

It's never positive when you're encouraged to retire at age 26...
