Klopp delighted with Liverpool star’s return from injury

Liverpool have been boosted by the return of Alberto Moreno, who has resumed training after recovering from an injury, according to reports from the Daily Star.

Moreno has been an integral part of the Reds defence under Jurgen Klopp, but the Spain international missed their last two games against Manchester United and Southampton after picking up a hamstring problem.

However, the 23-year-old has given Liverpool a big boost by returning to training at their camp in Tenerife and is expected to be part of their next fixture against Tottenham Hotspur.

And Klopp is delighted with Moreno’s recovery, claiming that his return is a big boost ahead of the tail end of the campaign.

He said: “It’s really big for us. We let him come in this morning, training light – no real challenges, he could pass a few balls and things like this.

“But it was really good and he felt absolutely nothing, so from tomorrow he is completely back in the race, which is very important for us.”

Liverpool were hoping to sneak into fourth and qualify for the Champions League, but after their shock 3-2 loss against the Saints, the Merseyside club have fallen off the trail and are seven points behind fourth place Manchester City.

Moreno has made 39 appearances in all competitions this season, providing three assists.
