Albert Riera has blasted Liverpool's board for their treatment of him as he looks forward to his expected summer exit from Anfield.[LNB] Riera has failed to establish himself for the Reds since an £8million move from Espanyol and has not played since a verbal attack on Rafa Benitez in March.[LNB]The 28-year-old accepts his Liverpool career is over and says the Reds board have done nothing to assist his exit, claiming Benitez has too much power at the club.[LNB]"I want to leave," Riera told the Daily Mirror. "English clubs are run differently to Spanish clubs.[LNB]"In England you have a manager at the club and the board of the club has done nothing for me. The club has not fought for me.[LNB]"I do not want to quarrel, but if a club doesn't fight for you, that means they don't want you. I do not want to be in a place where I am not wanted."[LNB]Riera made 28 league appearances in his first season at Liverpool but just 12 this term having fallen out of favour.[LNB]And his lack of first-team opportunities this year have cost him a place in Spain's World Cup squad.
