Sevilla move on without Moreno

Alberto Moreno was removed from the Sevilla squad after a deal was agreed with Liverpool before the UEFA Super Cup.

CARDIFF, Wales -- Unai Emery insisted that Sevilla can cope with the impending departure of left-back Alberto Moreno, after watching his side fall to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.

Sevilla won the Europa League three months ago but having already lost two key players in Ivan Rakitic and Stephane Mbia, who respectively moved to Barcelona and returned to QPR after a loan spell, they are also set to wave goodbye to Moreno.

The full-back is expected to complete a move to Liverpool, with Emery opting to omit Moreno completely from his squad because of the developing transfer.

But Sevilla's coach feels that the Andalusians, who have also sold star names including Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo in recent seasons, are capable of rebuilding again.

"This [the Moreno transfer] was more or less in the offing for a month and a half or two," Emery told his post-match news conference. "We are close to England, close to teams that are interested in Alberto and it is moving fast.

"We want to wish Alberto all the best. Now we will have to look for another player to come in who is able to give big performances.

"Sevilla had important players who are now gone. I do not want to remember those who are no longer here. Talking about Alberto Moreno, Rakitic, Navas, Sevilla has always returned and come back with a strong squad. We are not going to cease in the effort to continue to reinvent ourselves. We wish them well."

As for the 2-0 defeat to Madrid, Emery said: "It's true that you play finals to win, and you need to be involved heavily in the game, which we were.

"We knew that we had a strong opponent, but offensively, we were missing a little something and we weren't as aggressive in front of goal as we could have been."
