Queiroz backs Meireles for success

Portugal boss Carlos Queiroz believes new Liverpool signing Raul Meireles will prove a success in the Premier League.

Liverpool moved to sign Meireles, 27, from Porto after Alberto Aquilani joined Juventus on loan and Javier Mascherano made his long-awaited switch to Barcelona, and Queiroz feels he could be the ideal replacement for the duo in central midfield.

"I think Raul Meireles is a fantastic player in the national team," he said on Liverpool's official website. "He's one of the pillars of the Portugal team. He's a great player and an excellent professional. He has all the conditions to be a success in English football at Liverpool.

"They have just signed the services of a player who stands out for his application, his professional dedication, his technical and footballing quality, and will be very successful for the Liverpool team.

"He's a box-to-box midfielder, he's hard-working, creative, is a good finisher, he's consistent, very solid, a great team player. He's a great person who is serious. He's a player who has a lot of capacity to communicate. He'll be a great reinforcement for the Liverpool team."
