Alberto Moreno is a footballer who plays professionally in the English Premier League (EPL) as a left defender for both Liverpool FC and the Spanish national team. He started playing football as a young boy and has grown to the point where he plays for such an important club as Liverpool.
Alberto Moreno’s Bio
The left-back was born Alberto Moreno Pérez on 5 July 1992 in Seville, Spain. He grew up here, although not much is known about his personal life since a larger part of his life was dominated by football.
He started playing soccer at the age of 13 when he joined his home club Sevilla, where he played until 2011. He then began his senior national team career with Sevilla Atlético, where he played until he moved to Seville. Later he moved to Liverpool, for whom he still plays at the beginning of the 2018/2019 season.
His club career was underlined by a number of successes such as the UEFA Europa League title, which he won with Sevilla in 2014. With the Reds, he not only became a player Jurgen Klopp trusts but to whom he has also dedicated a lot of playing time. With the club, Monero finished runners-up in the 2015 Football League Cup and missed out on the UEFA Champions League in 2018.
Although he is a defensive player, Moreno has scored a number of goals for Liverpool. After playing 88 league matches, he scored 3 goals and at the same time contributed to the team scoring a number of clean goals. He also scored 3 goals for Sevilla after playing nearly fifty games.
Alberto Moreno, with a well-equipped club career, has also had an international career, which is quite good. In 2013 he received the call to play for the Spanish U21 team for the first time and in the same year, he received the call to play for the senior national team of the country. Unfortunately, he has not played many games for the Red Fury (the national team), considering how many players the team has. The last time he was invited to play for the team was in November 2017, as he was not supposed to play for the country at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Since it is every footballer’s dream to play for a big club like Liverpool FC, Alberto cried when he was asked to move from Seville to Merseyside, because he considered his former club the club of his life and he was so attached to his hometown that he even had a tattoo of the city tattooed on his leg.
Although the game in Liverpool was not without challenges for him due to the type of players the club has, Moreno can still get his fair share of time on the field and has stated that he is willing to continue fighting for a place in the first team.
Parents, Wife, Family
The parents of Alberto Moreno are Carmen Pérez and Diego Moreno. Somehow you don’t know as much about them as you do about most other personal things about the Liverpool player.
However, if you wonder if he is single, he is not. Since he is not married yet, he has been dating Lilia Granadilla for some time and they have already started a family, with two children together. Lilia gave birth to the couple’s second child, Alberto Junior Moreno, in 2017.
As with many other football players, it is expected that in the foreseeable future Alberto will form an alliance with his girlfriend, who has been his partner for many years.
Height and Weight
Even for a defensive player like Alberto Moreno, football is not necessarily the sport that needs the biggest men or that is best built. However, the man from Liverpool is not the tallest man you will find on a football field with a height of 1.71 m (1.71 feet), which some may not consider tall. He has a bodyweight of 64 kg (141 lbs). His body measurements coupled with his skills and talent have made him the good player that he is.
