Alberto Moreno has sent a touching farewell message to the supporters, players and staff at Liverpool FC as he leaves the club after five years.

The Spaniard, a Champions League winner with Jürgen Klopp’s side last month, has now departed the Reds following the expiry of his contract.

Moreno made 141 appearances and scored three goals during his time at Anfield having joined Liverpool from Sevilla in the summer of 2014.

The left-back posted the message below on his social media accounts on Monday night to express his appreciation for the time he spent on Merseyside…

Hi Reds,

Life goes in cycles, and mine at my beloved Liverpool FC has drawn to an end. Upon reaching this point, I would like to thank the entire Liverpool family; my dear teammates, with whom I have shared five marvellous years and who I will forever think of as family, and, of course, the owners, directors, coaching staff, doctors, physios, kitmen, and each and every person at the club.

Thank you for making me a better footballer and, above all, a better person; for helping me to fulfil one of my childhood dreams by winning the Champions League and, in doing so, become a small part of the history of this great club.

My gratitude too to the city, which embraced me as one of its own from day one and which will live on in my memory whenever I look at my son, Alberto Jr, a Liverpudlian himself.

Finally, a very special thank you to the club’s superb fans, who always supported me. I wish you all at Liverpool FC the greatest successes. Wherever life takes me from here, I will always carry you in my heart and forever be a fan.

You’ll Never Walk Alone!

Alberto Moreno
