Alberto Moreno Screamed ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ After Villarreal Beat Manchester United

Alberto Moreno screamed "you'll never walk alone" on the pitch, then taunted Manchester United fans in the dressing room, after Villarreal's Europa League victory on Wednesday.

The former Liverpool left-back had his winners' medal around his neck after Villarreal's penalty shootout triumph and - recording his reaction on Instagram - he shouted "Vamos! [Go!] You'll never walk alone! You'll never walk alone!"

As if it wasn't enough salt in Man United's wounds to hear the anthem of their great rivals, the 28-year-old Spain international had more to say in the changing room.

Reacting to incoming congratulatory messages from his former club, Moreno said to camera: "For all the fans of Liverpool, vamos!

"Man United? Get out! Get out, Man United, get out... You'll never walk alone. Siempre [forever] Liverpool," he added, tapping his chest.

Moreno, who played 141 games for Liverpool across five seasons before joining Villarreal in 2019, was understandably elated after coming on as a substitute before extra time, then converting in the shootout, as Unai Emery's team defeated the Premier League side.

The full-back was playing in his third Europa League final, having won with Sevilla in 2014 and lost with Liverpool in 2016. However this one clearly meant a lot as it was Villarreal's first major honour and against the great rivals of his former club.

Moreno's 2020-21 season was interrupted by a cruciate ligament injury to his left knee which kept him out for over six months.

However it had a happy ending for him, as his namesake Gerard Moreno gave Villarreal the lead in Gdasnk and - despite Edinson Cavani's second-half equaliser - the Spanish side triumphed in a remarkable, 22-penalty shootout.
