Liverpool star Alberto Moreno heads to the Vatican City with his girlfriend

Alberto Moreno posed for a selfie with his stunning girlfriend as the Liverpool defender soaked up the sights of Vatican City on Tuesday afternoon.

The Spanish defender has endured a tough start to the 2016-17 season after falling out of favour under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Moreno started Liverpool’s Premier League opener at the Emirates Stadium but the left-back struggled badly in the 4-3 victory over Arsenal.

Klopp has started James Milner at left-back since the trip to north London and the retired England midfielder has been one of Liverpool’s best players.

But the former Borussia Dortmund manager praised Moreno for his response in first-team training after their 5-1 win against 10-man Hull City last month.

And the 23-year-old looked to take a break from football before presumably redoubling his efforts to win over Klopp as the former Sevilla defender travelled to Vatican City with his girlfriend Lilia Granadilla.

Moreno posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:

“Vatican with my gordiki @liliagranadilla #roma #tuttobello #italy”
