Riera backtracks and wants to stay at Liverpool
Out-of-favor Liverpool winger Albert Riera wants to stay at the Premier League club and says that his talks with Spartak Moscow over a possible transfer have stalled.
Riera's lack of first-team action boiled over into critical remarks about coach Rafa Benitez, who promptly left the former Spain international out of the lineup.
But Riera has told sports daily Marca: "I want to continue my career at Liverpool, which is one of the best clubs in the world."
Riera, who is looking for more playing time as he bids to make Spain's World Cup squad, says his future will probably be decided in the summer.
He says there has been no progress in negotiations about a possible move to Spartak.
