I never got into that but Sevilla have understood that Liverpool’s offer was good and I am going.“[I have] many feelings together. What happened on the pitch, with the fans, will remain forever etched on me and I could not help but mourn [his departure] because I did not expect it.“First came the parting with colleagues, then with the fans…all very complicated.“Liverpool are a great team and of course I’m super-motivated. I hope things go well.” Incoming Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno last_img
