Liverpool legend Steve Nichol hopes Alberto Moreno signs for Arsenal because he’s a bit rubbish.
Alberto Moreno has been linked with a move to Arsenal for a while now. Around a week ago, Arsenal fans breathed a sigh of relief with the news that Moreno would rather move to Spain than come to Arsenal on a free.
Now, Steve Nichol is stoking up the links again all because he still hasn’t got over 1989.
“As a Liverpool fan, I hope so!” Nicol joked when asked about Moreno swapping Liverpool for Arsenal.
“Quite honestly, Moreno can’t defend and the whole reason Liverpool brought in Robertson is so they could have someone who can actually defend.
“(Emery) must know Moreno can’t defend. Is he any better defensively than (Nacho) Monreal? No, he’s not.”
Thankfully, a source close to Fenerbahce, another club linked with Moreno, believes the player is set on returning to Spain.
He is, reportedly, close to a club that will play in the Champions League. So that’s definitely not us, then.
For those ready to point out that the 26-year-old Moreno is already a Champions League winner it’s worth noting that he played a grand total of eight minutes in the entire competition.
He wasn’t even included in the squad for 58% of their matches in their run to the final.
In total, he played 344 minutes for Liverpool in all competitions last season.
