Former Reds manager Brendan Rodgers splashed on many attacking players, but barely any of them had any effect in Anfield. One of his not-so-successful projects came by the name of Luis Alberto. The 23-year-old attacker was loaned out to Malaga last season and barely saw any time on the pitch due to injuries. This season he returned, and in great form at that.
Luis Alberto was loaned to Deportivo La Coruña at the beginning of this season. The electrifying Spanish international played a total of 27 games for Deportivo La Coruña, scoring 6 goals and handing out 6 assists.
He had a huge impact in Deportivos’ campaign and is regarded as one of the most promising Spanish players in La Liga.
Luis Alberto’s playmaking skills and vision have been compared to Philippe Coutinho, one of Liverpool’s key players. It’s no surprise he has evolved into a very good player as he was signed from Barcelona’s youth academy as a promising starlet.
Not only has Luis Alberto had a stellar season, but he is also keen on playing in Anfield under Jurgen Klopp.”It is obvious that having Klopp as a manager is an extra motivation to return to Liverpool” said the Spaniard when he was asked about his plans for the future. He is a very versatile player that can play any attack position and will make a great addition to Klopp’s side for next year.
