Brendan Rodgers’ side have missed out on Champions League football but the full-back insists that he does not see a season in the second-tier competition as a nuisance
Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno insists that he is a “big fan” of the Europa League, with the Reds set for another campaign in Europe’s second-tier competition.
Brendan Rodgers’ side missed out on Champions League football in 2014-15, and appear set to secure a spot in the sister competition, despite both Tottenham and Southampton chasing their rivals ahead of the final day of the season.
A win over Stoke City on Sunday would guarantee Liverpool’s passage into the Europa League, and Moreno is looking forward to another European campaign.
“I’m a big fan of the Europa League, you know I can go home and look at my medal in my trophy cabinet at home which I’ve already won, I love it,” Moreno, who won the competition with Sevilla last season, told theLiverpool Echo.
“For any player and any fan, winning any trophy – not least at a European level – is absolutely something positive.
“We always want to win trophies, let’s face it, and I enjoyed it when we won.”
