Riquelme tells Villarreal: I'll be there if you need me

Boca Juniors star Juan Roman Riquelme says he's ready to come to the rescue of Villarreal.

Villarreal have been in disappointing form this season as they sit 17th in La Liga, and Riquelme says he would not think twice about helping out his former club.

"Well, I would go tomorrow," Riquelme told Marca. "I would ask Boca for permission and then I would go.

"Villarreal are also my club. It is part of my life. I have always loved it, they treated me wonderfully and if they need me, I will be there.

"I am sure they will do well anyway, but if they want, I will board a plane and go there."
