Rodgers confirms Reina loan move

first_img Press Association Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that goalkeeper Jose Reina is set to join Napoli on loan. Rodgers, speaking at a press conference on the club’s pre-season tour of Thailand, said: “It was obviously a difficult decision. “From last season, really, as a manager I was led to believe that we were going to get an offer for Pepe that would probably see him leave the club. “On the football side, we have to protect the team, and at that stage we started our search for another goalkeeper. “That found us Simon Mignolet, who’s top class – one of the top young European goalkeepers. “As events transpired, that move (for Reina) didn’t happen and it left us with two very good goalkeepers. Both would have been fighting for the number one position. “Then obviously an opportunity arose for Pepe and it was one we felt as a football club was best for him to take. “As a senior goalkeeper, he needs to be playing. It’s a very important year for him with the World Cup next year. “It wouldn’t have served any purpose, both for the club and him personally, if he’d been the one missing out. The Italian club, now managed by former Reds boss Rafael Benitez, made an approach for the Spain international last week. Liverpool can afford to let the 30-year-old move having signed Belgium keeper Simon Mignolet from Sunderland earlier this summer. “It’s decided he will go to Napoli and we’ve got two very good goalkeepers still at the football club. “We’ll review it after the loan finishes.” Reina, who joined Liverpool in 2005, had also been linked this summer with a move to Barcelona, where he came through the youth ranks. last_img read more
