Gary Neville blasts Alberto Moreno for first half display against Arsenal

Alberto Moreno endured a nightmare first half in Liverpool’s Premier League opener against Arsenal this afternoon.

The Spanish full-back conceded a penalty with a rash challenge and was then caught out of position moments later as Theo Walcott made amends for his miss from the spot by firing past Simon Mignolet.

One can only imagine how Liverpool fan and Moreno critic Jamie Carragher must have been reacting inside the Sky Sports studio, but Gary Neville didn’t exactly go easy on the 24-year-old from his position up in the gantry at the Emirates Stadium.

The former Manchester United star, who managed Valencia for several months of last season, made it clearly that he doesn’t hold a particularly high opinion of the left-back.

In fact, today’s comment might be even harsher than his words about  a few years back, when he described the Brazilian as a footballer who looked as if he was being controlled by a 10-year-old playing on a PlayStation.

Neville's comment on Moreno

On Liverpool’s No. 18, Neville said live on Sky Sports: “You might as well start a goal down when you have Moreno at left back.”
