Ali Al Habsi: Played down talk linking him with a move to Liverpool

Reports over the weekend suggested Liverpool were lining up a move for Al Habsi as doubts continue to surround the long-term future of Pepe Reina.

Al Habsi has established himself as one of the best shot-stoppers in the Premier League since joining Wigan, initially on loan from Bolton, before making the move permanent in the summer of 2011.

The 30-year-old has dismissed the speculation and insists he is happy to stay at Wigan.

"I have said it many times before but I love this football club, I love the fans and I hope to give them much more," Al Habsi told the Wigan Evening Post.

"I heard about what was said at the weekend, but that kind of thing is not of any importance to me.

"I am very, very happy at Wigan - as has been the case since I first came here.

"I am doing well, my form is coming on with every game I play, and my confidence is very high.

"All I want to do is concentrate on my job here and to help the team, because there is lots of work to be done."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
