Alberto Moreno and his English bull terrier Ali have become inseparable since he got his new pet last autumn, and the Liverpool defender now appears to be sharing his bed with his canine friend.

In a worrying development for Moreno’s long-term girlfriend LiLia Granadilla, the former Sevilla defender looked blissfully content next to his loyal pet in his bed.

The 22-year-old, who has started 19 of Liverpool’s 27 Premier League games this season, was looking forward to an afternoon nap with Ali, who presumably needs no excuse for some shut eye.

Moreno posted the above photo and wrote: “Going to sleep…zzzz”

Earlier this month, the Liverpool defender celebrated his fourth anniversary with his beautiful girlfriend LiLia, taking to the photo-sharing app to marvel at their relationship.

Moreno said: “4 years today with my girl. A special day for both of us. My precious @. For many years by your side. I love youuu.”

Moreno helped Sevilla win the Europa League last season before his summer switch to Merseyside in a £12m deal.
