Alberto Moreno has confessed that his move to Liverpool has not been an easy one for him, and that the language barrier has been an issue.
The Spanish left-back joined the Reds over the summer from Sevilla, and is widely being hailed as the best signing of a disappointing window at Anfield.
The 22-year-old has already made 12 outings under Brendan Rodgers, weighting in with one goal – a memorable solo effort in the 3-0 Tottenham win – and one assist in European action.
But his Merseyside stint has been blighted with big mistakes, with individual errors at Manchester City and Newcastle having cost Liverpool vital goals and points.
Moreno himself says that he’s happy with his move, but that the transition has not been a completely smooth one:
“To be totally honest, I am extremely happy here, I’m overjoyed with how things are going.” He is quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
“It has really flown by. I think that’s important for a player, as it means that things are going well, you are playing regularly and performing quite well. I really hope that I can stay here for a long time to come.
“The language has been the thing I’ve struggled with the most. After that, my mum and dad are over here with me and so the days take care of themselves.
“Everything is great here at Melwood, the facilities, my teammates, the manager; everything. I really couldn’t be happier here.”
