Pepe Reina has been a good servant to Liverpool Football Club, but the Spaniard now feels he has a higher calling and it’s time to move on while his team look set to yet again miss out on a place in the Premier League top four and subsequently the Champions League.

We’ve compiled a shortlist of the top five candidates to take over from Pepe Reina.
