Goalkeeper Reina has struggled for form and fitness at times this season, and that has prompted speculation he could be sold by Rodgers in the summer.

However, the Spain international has no problems with the Liverpool boss and is pleased with the direction that the team are heading in under Rodgers.

"My relationship with the manager is very good," Reina said in the Liverpool Echo. "I think we have got a lot of ideas in common. There is understanding about tactics and the way we see football is quite similar.

"I am very happy with our manager.

"He is making sure we are learning every day the way to win and that's important. If we play good football then we will be closer to winning games.

"There's no doubt I am more involved with my feet than before but so is the team. The amount of passes in every game is going higher and higher compared to last season. It's a different style and philosophy - I am happy about it.

"I think given time and as long as the players follow him it will be good. It will become a great side - one which is difficult to beat."

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
