Reds reject Riera joins Olympiacos
24 Jul 2010 - 13:02:13
Albert Riera has ended his disappointing stint at Liverpool by completing his transfer to Greek side Olympiacos.
The 28-year-old Spanish winger criticised former Reds manager Rafael Benitez last season and has been linked with a move away from Anfield ever since.
Reports claim the deal is worth £3.3million and that former Espanyol star Riera has signed a four-year contract.
He said after completing the switch: "I am eager for titles and honours. I am comfortable with my decision and I will be playing with a group hunting for trophies.
"I came to win titles, which are missing from my career.
"I was told the fans were coming but what I saw was much more than I expected. I did not expect so many people, honestly. It was a surprise for me.
"Such enthusiasm is good for the club. I understand how important the support of the people is, it's priceless."
