Chelsea attacker accepts no blame for Liverpool departure

Raul Meireles claims he is no ‘Judas’ and that money wasn’t the reason why he decided to accept a transfer deadline day move away from the club.

The Portuguese international handed in a transfer request with barely an hour left in the summer transfer window, before completing a £15m switch to Stamford Bridge.

The 28 year-old noted: “People think I am a Judas and that it was because of the money. It was not because of that,”

The midfielder added: “I am not the only one to blame for my exit from Liverpool but I will never stop loving the club and I have great friends there.”
