Reina confident Torres will stay at Anfield

Liverpool’s player of the year Pepe Reina says he is “calm” about Fernando Torres’ future, believing he will remain at Anfield.

The failure to qualify for the Champions League, and the club’s financial situation, have been cited in the media as reasons why Torres will want to leave and why the club will accept the huge money they would get from allowing him to do so.

However, Reina, who is currently preparing for the World Cup alongside Torres, said “I am calm about Fernando. I spoke to him about his future and he has told me that he intends to continue with us.

“Fernando suffered so many blows last season, but he is a professional and has always wanted to do well for us. That is what he remains – committed to this club.”

The Reds’ keeper is also convinced Rafa Benitez will remain in charge, “I am convinced that Rafa will still be with us and that is good for us because he wants revenge in the next campaign.”
