Roy Keane Pulls No Punches With Assessment Of Alberto Moreno

"Some madness, particularly from one player, cost them," said Roy Keane of Liverpool's second half collapse against Sevilla on Tuesday night.

The player of which Keane spoke was left-back Alberto Moreno. Down 3-0 at half-time, Sevilla would come back to grab a point in the 93rd. Moreno was directly responsible for Sevilla's first two goals, giving away a free kick when led to the first and then a penalty for the second.


Speaking on ITV's Champions League highlights show, Keane said that he believes Liverpool will come up short in big games due to defensive frailties caused by "one or two players who just aren't good enough."

"Moreno, he's an international player. You look at the free-kick he gave away, that's nothing to do with the manager. Obviously, selecting him, of course

They've got other players in the background, they've tried Milner, they're brought Robertson in. You're thinking, 'Obviously, they don't fancy them at left-back. So this guy keeps getting his game."

Moreno's concession of the penalty left Keane particularly exasperated.

And what he's doing for the penalty? You wouldn't see a child doing that. The only word I can use is 'madness'. Pure madness for an international player to do that. We all know it's a team game but sometimes you have to point the finger and say 'you're costing us'.
