Former Liverpool legend John Aldridge has suggested that Liverpool needs a new left-back if they are going to challenge for trophies.
For him, Alberto Moreno is not up to the standard and has to be replaced in the transfer winder. Indeed, many fans were not satisfied with Moreno’s performance in the defeat against Sevilla and had called for the player to be replaced.
John Aldridge said that he does not want to put the blame on any individual for the defeat against Sevilla but believes that Moreno got it wrong on the first goal conceded by Liverpool. He said that it is okay to make a mistake once but in the case of Moreno he keeps making the same mistakes time and again. He is often guilty of ball watching and most of the time he gets his positioning wrong.
For Aldridge, this is inadmissible at this level and given that Moreno has plenty of experience he should not have been making such mistakes. He believes that the player has some abilities but that he is struggling to play with Liverpool current formation. If Liverpool want to win something in the future, Aldridge believes that they will need to get a top left-back. Read more
