Espanyol striker Luis Garcia has spoken at his relief at seeing former team-mate Albert Riera complete his switch to Anfield.

Riera is believed to have had a falling out with some of his former team-mates in a dressing room incident last season and this appears to have left a sour taste with Garcia:

“Riera being sold is a breath of oxygen for us,” Garcia told As. “He made sure we understood he wanted to leave and it ended with a move.

“For sure him leaving means we lose a great footballer, someone very important. Nobody’s going to say the contrary that Albert did a lot to the club in term of football quality.

“Nevertheless, he’s part of the past now. We are who we are and have to carry on, that’s what he said when he left.

“To me this (argument with Riera) is over and I don’t want to speak about it. I’m back, happy with my summertime and don’t want to get hot speaking about it (laughs).”
