He led Monaco to the 2004 Champions League final before joining Liverpool in 2005, where he scored 12 goals in 61 appearances. He also played for Valencia before spending his last season at Marseille.
Morientes, 34, is fourth on Spain's all-time leading scorers list with 27 goals in 47 appearances.
