Riera happy to see Benitez leave Liverpool

Albert Riera has pledged his future to Liverpool after the departure of manager Rafa Benitez.

The Spain winger appeared on his way out of Anfield last season after a furious outburst against his manager.

But yesterday he said: "On a personal level, I benefit from his departure. I was looking around for other options for the past couple of months. It was a closed door for me but now it is open once again.

"For now I'm staying but we know that unexpected things can happen in football. The good thing is that I still attract interest and I'm sure the price wouldn't be a problem

"It's a pity because under normal circumstances I could've been in the squad, a World Cup is the biggest event in a footballer's career".
