Former Liverpool winger Albert Riera is delighted with his move to Olympiakos.

He is thought to have been sold for £3.3million, with reports stating he has signed a four-year deal.

Riera joined Liverpool from Espanyol two years ago but failed to impress regularly, scoring just five goals in 56 appearances.

He was linked with Spartak Moscow last season but his wage demands were thought to have priced him out of a move.

Speaking about his motivation for the move, Riera said: "I am eager for titles and honours.

"I am comfortable with my decision and I will be playing with a group hunting for trophies."

On his extraordinary reception, he added: "I did not expect so many people, honestly. It was a surprise for me."
