Loads of Liverpool fans have reacted on Twitter after some footage emerged of Alberto Moreno’s stunning strike against Tottenham back in 2014, with fans joking about how great they thought the Spaniard was going to become and one supporter even saying he thought the club had a ‘Roberto Carlos regen in our hands’.
Before Andy Robertson, left-back had been a problem at Anfield for years, with no one filling the spot with much confidence since the 2008 departure of John Arne Riise. Moreno signed in the summer of 2014 for £12m, and produced a stunning strike in one of his very first games for the club, leading supporters to believe they had finally fixed their left-back issues, at least if the Twitter reactions down below are to be believed.
After a Twitter user shared a pitch graphic showing Gareth Bale’s iconic goal against Barcelona, in which the Wales international ran off the pitch to escape Marc Bartra before scoring, Reds fans hijacked the image and claimed it was actually showing Moreno’s strike against Spurs, for which he sprinted a similar path to Bale before firing a fine finish into the bottom right corner.
Needless to say, there may be a tinge of sarcasm in the comments down below…
