Riera set for Liverpool exit
Tuesday 23 March 2010
Liverpool have agreed to sell outspoken winger Albert Riera to CSKA Moscow according to reports today.
The Spanish international recently spoke out against manager Rafael Benitez, a move which earned him a suspension from the team.
Riera was quoted as saying: "When the coach says nothing to you and you are well, with no physical problems and training well, you cannot help but think it must be something personal."
The reports claim a fee of £6m has been agreed with the Russian outfit, although Spartak Moscow are also understood to be considering a bid for the winger.
The 27-year-old joined Liverpool from Espanyol in 2008, and has made just 16 appearances this season.
