Liverpool hero Jan Molby has revealed that he heard rumours former manager Brendan Rodgers didn't think Alberto Moreno was tall enough and a good enough defender to play at full-back for the Reds.
Writing for the Liverpool Echo, Molby, who played for the Merseyside outfit for over a decade between 1984 and 1996, believes that new boss Jurgen Klopp is helping the Spaniard by playing to his strengths.
In fact, Molby has suggested that the revered coach is asking the defender to be 'positive and aggressive' when on the pitch.

Molby wrote: "Alberto Moreno has also improved, even if he isn't quite on the same level as Clyne.
"But what's interesting for the Spaniard is that, rather than being told to work on his weaknesses as Brendan Rodgers wanted, he has instead been given the opportunity to show off his strengths by Klopp.
"Instead of being asked to do things he can't, Moreno is doing the things he can.
"I'd heard rumours Rodgers thought the Spaniard wasn't tall enough for a full-back and wasn't a good enough defender.
"Klopp, though, is trying to turn the tables by asking Moreno to be positive and aggressive and therefore cover his weaknesses."
Class of Klopp
Ultimately, you have to admire Klopp's ability to help individual players progress. The 48-year-old coach knows exactly how to get the best out of each player and it looks like he's intent on helping Moreno shine on Merseyside.
A couple of simple instructions have seemingly helped the 23-year-old in his pursuit of success at the club. Moreno is by no means the finished article, of course, but with Klopp in charge he has a great chance of coming to prominence on English soil.
