There was a very touching moment at the end of last night's European Super Cup which saw Real Madrid beat Liga rivals Sevilla in Cardiff.

Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno was supposed to be playing his last game for the club ahead of a move to Liverpool.

However, with a £12m deal being struck between the two sides, Moreno was not allowed to play in case he sustained an injury to scupper the deal.

And, at the end of the night, the emotion got too much for the Spain international.

Following the final whistle, he broke down in tears and was inconsolable as he realised he has worn the shirt of the club he first joined as a kid for the last time.

So often we are told that footballers don't care enough, that they don't share the fans' passion for their clubs.

But no one could ever level that accusation at Moreno.

If he shows similar emotion following his imminent arrival at Anfield, it won't be long before he is a firm Liverpool favourite.
