Dossena wants to leave Reds

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena seems destined for a return to Italy after asking manager Rafael Benitez for a transfer.

The 27-year-old international left-back failed to establish himself after being signed as John Arne Riise's replacement in a £7million transfer from Udinese last summer.

"Before coming back to Italy I talked to Rafael Benitez and explained to him my doubts," he told Tuttosport.

"I told him I wanted to leave. He is an exceptional person and understood my problem.

"He told me that if they receive an offer that satisfies both the club and me, he will take it into consideration and try to facilitate my transfer.

"I would run to Juve. They showed interest in me last year, but then Liverpool stepped in and wrapped things up in less than an hour.

"Of course I would accept an offer. You're talking about one of the biggest clubs in Europe."
