Garcia shy over Reds goal

Former Liverpool midfielder Luis Garcia has revealed that he would feel strange if he was to score for Athletico Madrid against Liverpool in tonight’s Champions League clash at the Vicente Calderon.

Signed in the summer of 2004, Garcia left Anfield for Athleti in 2007 on good terms, thanking the fans for all their support and has always kept the club special in his heart.

On tonight’s game, when he will line-up against his former team for the first time, Garcia says, “I am always happy to score goals and I am an Atletico player now.

“In my heart I would feel strange, and I would say ‘sorry’ because I wouldn’t feel any joy scoring against Liverpool.

‘œIt makes me happy that Liverpool fans look back and appreciate what I gave to the team.

“There were times last year when I wished I was back there, when I watched Liverpool games and thought I could add something to the team, I became frustrated just thinking about it.”

Kick-off is at 7.45pm.
