Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno is ready for the ‘strange’ experience of facing the team he support, Sevilla, in the Europa League Final.
Moreno began his career at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan before a 2014 switch to Anfield, lifting the Europa League that same year.
“It will be a strange final. I was born in Seville, I'm from Seville and I'm a Sevilla fan. I was at Sevilla for 10 years - from a young age - but now I'm a Liverpool player. I'm happy here and I’m developing further,” he told an interview with UEFA’s official site.
“A year-and-a-half ago I was sharing the dressing room with my friends at Sevilla, and now I'll be facing them in a European final. It will be fantastic, and I can't wait for the day of the final.
“Winning the 2014 final with Sevilla is a wonderful memory. Winning a trophy is amazing - it was my first year as a professional, and winning the Europa League straight away was brilliant. Would I love to win it again? Of course. Everybody wants to win every possible trophy.
“Sevilla have a very good team, and as everybody knows they've reached three consecutive Europa League finals. They're a tough team with some great players, but we've also had a fantastic Europa League campaign, and we've become stronger and stronger.
“We have to be ourselves - we have to believe in ourselves, and do what we know how to do. Belief is the most important thing.”
