Excellent player they got there. At least it's a better player than the spanish-favourites of Benítez. Where are they now? For what I've seen, only Xabi Alonso deserves to play in that team, even Reina is an average player (he's no better than Dudek). Arbeloa is average aswell as F. Torres. In a year or two he'll be back in Spain. ;)
