Pires wants Riquelme in Villarreal line-up

Riquelme isn't being considered for selection by coach Manuel Pellegrini after falling out with management midway through last season.

Pires said: "I see a happy Roman, he is a player who I like watching play. In any case I am not the president nor the coach and I do not make the decisions here.

"It is a very complicated situation for him and also for us. We know that we have a player like him, but he is unavailable. It would be good that the club found a solution because it is a difficult situation."
