Jose Reina: Came through the Barcelona academy

Valdes, 31, announced last month that he would not be signing a new contract with Barcelona when his current deal expires in 2014.

The current Barca keeper insists he wants a new challenge and while Reina - who came through the Barca academy and made a few appearances for their first-team - insists the Catalan club is the best in the world, he remains committed to Liverpool.

Reina told MoviStar: "I was surprised because Victor is with the best team in the world."

He added: "When I sign a contract I fulfil it and I have signed with Liverpool until 2016.

"Barcelona is the best club in the world. I know what it means because I trained there as a player and as a person."

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
