The former Reds left-back was a second-half substitute for Villarreal on Wednesday night and he scored a penalty in the dramatic shootout that ended when David de Gea’s effort was saved.
It came after regular and extra-time ended 1-1, and the result was one that saw the Spanish side clinch their first major honour, with the celebrations living up to just that.
“You’ll never walk alone, siempre [always]. Liverpool siempre, in my heart.”
I absolutely love it when former players show much they really care about LFC and 'get' the rivalry with United.
This video may possibly have turned Moreno from hapless defender to Liverpool legend… https://t.co/ILik1sdi6l

I think I like Alberto Moreno more now even as an ex- Liverpool player than I did when he actually was a Liverpool player.

Alberto Moreno gave us years of content last night

OK, I’ve seen enough. Moreno needs to be our priority signing this summer. https://t.co/cR8hRTUUAx

That was the best possible way to watch United lose a cup final wasn’t it haha
Great to see Albi Moreno bounce about with another European trophy

Man United fans chanting ‘you Scouse bastard’ at Alberto Moreno in the #EuropaLeagueFinal shows not even a global pandemic stops some obsessions

Absolute masterclass again from Klopp.
Allowing Alberto Moreno to leave Liverpool so he could go to Villarreal and put on a masterclass coming off the bench against Man United in the UEL final.
Never doubt this man. pic.twitter.com/21EdS8l4Qa

That’s Mascherano and Moreno that have mentioned us after beating United in a European final ??? this might be one of my favourite Thursday’s of all time.

It’s the ending to the game that all Reds had wanted and it was a fitting finale to the campaign for Moreno, as he only returned to the pitch in April after an ACL injury at the start of 2020/21.
Well in, Albie Moreno.
