Liverpool, Barcelona alerted as Garay announces: I'm 100% ready to play

Released Valencia defender Ezequiel Garay says he's ready to make a playing return.

The Argentina international was cut loose by Valencia last summer as he recovered from a knee injury.

Garay, now a free agent, has been linked with Liverpool and Barcelona.

Garay said, “Many will wonder why I did not sign for any team in June, being free and being almost recovered. There is the reason, ALMOST.

"My decision was to recover 100% so that I can give everything of myself once incorporated into my next job.

"To do this, I had to make a decision, divide the final stretch of the recovery into two parts: The first in Madrid with a great team already known in my past and with excellent results. And the second, to go to another city where I considered the best professionals to be, which I have been with for the last few years at my last club.

“Now that both stages are finished, I will finish with the third one, joining what has been, is and will be my passion, football. But with a difference, 100% recovered and ready to step on the field and give everything as I have done up to now."
