Reina ‘happy’ under Rodgers
Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has insisted that he is happy with life at the club under manager Brendan Rodgers.
The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from Anfield in recent months, with speculation surrounding his happiness on Merseyside rife.
Switches to the likes of Barcelona and Arsenal have been suggested, rumours which were further fuelled by Rodgers’ reported interest in England international Jack Butland.
But, Reina has moved to distance himself from talk of a move away from the Reds by stating that he is enjoying his time at Liverpool and has a good rapport with his manager:
“I have a great relationship with him.” He told the club’s official website.
“We have a lot of ideas in common and the way we see football is quite similar. Our understanding about tactics and feeling for football is very similar.
“I’m very happy with our manager.”
Liverpool have struggled this term, with Rodgers’ new tactical approach taking a while to transfer across to his new playing staff.
Reina has full faith in the former Swansea coach’s ability and tactics, and believes that the club will soon be performing to a high standard consistently:
“It’s about learning and he’s certainly making sure we learn every day in training about ways to win.
“If the players follow the philosophy, we’ll definitely become a great side – a difficult and strong side to beat and a competitive one.”
