Pepe Reina: Will return to Liverpool after Napoli loan

Pepe Reina: Will return to Liverpool after Napoli loan

The 31-year-old, who featured 30 times in Serie A during the last campaign, has been linked with a move to a host of European sides but his agent confirmed he is set to remain at Anfield.

Reina fell out of favour with Rodgers last summer and Simon Mignolet was brought in from Sunderland to become Liverpool's first-choice keeper, as the Spain international was shipped out to Napoli.

It remains to be seen if Reina features in Rodgers' thinking for the new Premier League campaign, but agent Manuel Garcia Quillon is due to meet the Liverpool boss to find out.

"Without a team? I have one - Liverpool. I have a deal for another two years, even if I've not yet spoken with the coach to see what his plans are," he told El Mundo Deportivo.

"Now I'm set to end my holidays and my agent is charged to do these things."

Reina has also been linked with a switch to Barcelona but that now appears to be unlikely following their capture of Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, who will compete with fellow new arrival Marc-Andre ter Stegen for the number one shirt at the Nou Camp.

However, Reina admitted that the Spanish giants did show an interest in him before he made the move to Napoli.

"I have not thought about this a lot this season. Last summer - it's true - there have been contacts, but during the last season I kept my concentration on Napoli," he said.

It seems as if Pepe is now suddenly happy to play for us again now that we have automatic CL and were a gnat's ass away from winning the league. I'd be happy for him to resurrect his Liverpool career provided he was fully committed to the cause.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
