Last summer Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers acquired the services of young Sevilla forward Luis Alberto for £6m.
Today the 21 year old forward was charged with drink-driving, banned from driving for 12 months and handed a £1500 fine.
Having struggled to get anywhere near the first team at Anfield, Liverpool fans criticised their forward on Twitter for getting into trouble with the law.
Some of the best tweets can be seen below.
Very Disappointed that Luis Alberto has been drink driving.. I think this explains why Rodgers has swerved him for a while now. #Idiot

Luis Alberto charged with drink driving. Our players literally can't stop getting 3 points this season, even when we're not playing.

"He's only 21" excuse. I'm younger than Alberto and know it's incredibly stupid to do such a thing. If I done that I would be embarrassed.
