Reina Won’t Be Leaving Liverpool Anytime Soon

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona saying he could not leave Anfield because he feels so loved.

There had been rumours linking him and Barca goalkeeper Victor Valdes swapping sides, but Reina wants to see out his contract at the Reds.

“I have three more years with Liverpool. I’m satisfied, comfortable and my family are very happy,” he told the Sun.

“Rumours are difficult to control but it’s flattering when a club like Barca is interested in you.

“I don’t know if there has been contact between the clubs or with my agent. At the moment I don’t think there’s anything serious.

“I don’t know how long I’ve got left in football, what I do know is I want to enjoy what remains and feel appreciated and at Liverpool I have that.”

Reina started his career at the Nou Camp but was forced to leave in the hunt for first-team football.

And he added, “The years I was in Barcelona were very good, I don’t have any bad feelings about not succeeding there.

“I played more than 50 games, when I was less than 20, it helped me grow a lot.

“I would’ve liked to have played there more, of course, but there’s no need to over-dramatize things.”
