Alberto Moreno is a footballer who plays professionally in the English premier league (EPL) for Liverpool FC as well as for the Spanish national team as the left-back. He started playing football as a young boy and has been able to grow to a point of playing for a club as important as Liverpool.
Alberto Moreno’s Bio
The left-back footballer was born Alberto Moreno Pérez on 5 July 1992 in Seville, Spain. It was here that he was brought up even though not so much is known about his personal life because a larger chunk of his life has been dominated by football.
He started playing football at the age of 13 when he joined his hometown club, Sevilla with which he kept playing until 2011 when he kick-started his senior career with Sevilla Atlético with which he played until he moved to Sevilla and then later he moved to Liverpool for which he still plays as at the start of the 2018/2019 season.
His club career has been highlighted with a number of accomplishments such as the UEFA Europa League title which he won with Sevilla in 2014. With the Reds, he did not only become a player that Jurgen Klopp has come to trust but whom he has given a lot of playing time. With the club, Monero ended as the runner-up of the Football League Cup in 2015 and missed out on the UEFA Champions League in 2018.
Even though he is a defensive player, Moreno has netted a number of goals for Liverpool. After playing 88 league games, he had 3 goals to his name while also helping the team to keep a number of clean sheets. In the same way, he had 3 goals for Sevilla after playing close to fifty games.
With a well-furnished club career, Alberto Moreno has also had an international career that is fairly good. He got the call to first play for the Spain under-21 team in 2013 and in the same year, he another got the call to play for the country’s senior team. Unfortunately, he has not gotten to play many games for The Red Fury (the national team) considering the abundance of players the team has. The last time he was invited to play for the team was in November 2017 as he was not called to play for the country at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Inasmuch as the dream of any footballer is to play in a big club like Liverpool FC, Alberto wept when he was to move to Merseyside from Sevilla because he considered his former club to be the club of his life and he had become so attached to his hometown that he even got a tattoo of the town on his leg.
Although playing in Liverpool has not been without its challenges for him as a result of the kind of players the club has, Moreno is still able to get his fair share of time on the field and has stated that he is ready to keep fighting for a position on the first team.
Parents, Wife, Family
Alberto Moreno’s parents are Carmen Pérez and Diego Moreno. Somehow, not so much is known about them just like most other personal things about the Liverpool player.
Nonetheless, if you are wondering whether he is single, he is not. Inasmuch as he is yet to get married, he has been in a relationship with Lilia Granadilla for some time now and the two have already started a family with two kids between them. Lilia gave birth to the couple’s second child, Alberto Junior Moreno in 2017.
Like many other football players, it is expected that anytime soon, Alberto may tie the knot with his girlfriend who has been his partner for many years.
Height and Weight
Football is not necessarily the type of sport that needs the tallest men around or the most well-built even for a defensive player like Alberto Moreno. That said, the Liverpool man is not the tallest you will find on a football pitch standing at a height of 5 feet 7 inches (1.71m) which may not be considered as tall by some. He has a bodyweight of 141 lbs (64 kg). His body measurements coupled with his skills and talent made him the good player that he is.
