​Liverpool star reveals falling out with former boss Rodgers

Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno has revealed that he fell out with former manager Brendan Rodgers after his continued absence from the first XI at the start of the season.

The 23-year-old also claims that he is now thriving under Jurgen Klopp because the German trusts in him.

He said: "I do feel he trusts me, he spends a lot of time with me. The fact he has spent so much time with me, I think, shows up in good performances on the field.

"I perhaps felt that Brendan didn't have quite so much confidence in me, certainly at the start of the season. He told me I was training hard but then I didn't feature for those first five or six games.

"He said to me that it was still early in the season and that my opportunity would come but after the first game against Stoke, when we kept a clean sheet, he said he wasn't going to change anything defensively at that point.

"It is true that when I was out of the team I was angry. It never entered my head that I was going to leave as I want to stay forever, but I had this inner anger, a rage almost.

"I felt I was playing well, training well. He told me that I was training well. But I couldn't see why I wasn't getting a chance at the beginning."
