Rodgers reveals impressive duo now settled at Liverpool

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says Javi Manquillo and Alberto Moreno have been able to settle in quickly since their summer arrivals.

Manquillo was signed from Atletico Madrid and Moreno from Sevilla in a summer where Rodgers transformed his side into an even better one from last season.

He told the Liverpool site: “Both were brought in because they can defend.

“Young Javi at right-back is only 20 years of age, but he’s like a rash. He’s all over attackers and he’s hard to beat. He gets forward well and he wants to create.

“Young Alberto Moreno is the same. He’s 22 years of age. He can defend. He’s quick on the recovery and I think everyone has seen his pace and his quality going forward.

“They’ll adapt more to this level and the league itself and the physicality of the league, they are only going to get better. But in the meantime, they are two real terrific young guys, who have settled well into the club.

“They are loving their life in Liverpool and they are really enjoying their football. As time goes by, they will improve with that.”
