Pepe Reina shares Rodgers’ footballing philosophy

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina says he is very happy with the start that new manager Brendan Rodgers has made at the club, and shares in his football philosophy.


Reina is currently sidelined through injury and has missed the last few games, with Australian Brad Jones stepping in for him.

Reina has been the focus of much speculation regarding his future on Merseyside, having won just two trophies since signing for the club in 2005.

However, the Spaniard told The Mirror on Saturday, “My relationship with the manager is very good, I think we have got a lot of ideas in common. There is understanding about tactics, and the way we see football is quite similar.

“I’m very happy with our manager. He’s making sure we are learning, every day, the way to win, and that’s important.

“If we play good football, then we will be closer to winning games.”

Reina has kept nine clean sheets in the league this season, from 23 starts.
