Liverpool fans react to Pepe Reina’s imminent departure

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on Pepe Reina’s imminent departure from Anfield.


As we reported on Saturday, Reina is set to complete a season-long loan move to Italian side Napoli, after falling to second choice behind Simon Mignolet at Liverpool.

Here we bring you just some of the reaction to the news, as well as fans paying tribute to the Spanish shotstopper, sharing memories down his eight year stay on Merseyside.

Before Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool left Indonesia yesterday, the Reds boss spoke to reporters about his decision to let Reina go.

“Financially it is something we needed to look at,” Rodgers is quoted in the Liverpool Echo.

“That would be the reason because obviously you wouldn’t move on a top goalkeeper.

“It reared its head over the last few months and I had to prepare for it by bringing in a new goalkeeper.

“Pepe is a good guy. I’ve a lot of time for him, and he understands what I want to do totally.

“He’s got a big season ahead because it’s a World Cup year and one where, if he wasn’t going to be playing, could severely harm his chances of going.”
