Another Golden Glove For Reina

Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina has won the Barclays Golden Glove Award for the third season in a row.

Once again Pepe had more shut-outs then any other keeper with 18 clean sheets in 37 appearances.

However, Reina was been quick to praise his team-mates for their part in the award and told the club’s official site: ‘The team has been defending so good for three years. It’s not about me. It’s about the team working together, the work rate of all of us. I have said it many, many times and I will say it again – these awards are for the team, it’s just that I get to keep it at home.

Rafa Benitez was delighted but not surprised to see Reina collecting another award and added: ‘I am not surprised. When you see the performance of Pepe in every game, and also the team in defence, you can understand why he normally doesn’t concede too many goals. I am really pleased to be here again.

‘When you talk about three seasons in a row, it means he is doing a good job. Always I say the same: for me, when we signed him he was the best ‘keeper in Spain. He’s really good, a good worker, he wants to learn – everything is positive now and for the future.

‘Everyone likes to see strikers scoring goals but your ‘keeper is always a key part of the team. When you don’t concede many goals you always know you can win because you always create chances.’
