Reina: No issues with Rodgers

Pepe Reina is adamant he has a ‘very good’ relationship with

Brendan Rodgers and is confident that Liverpool have the makings of

a ‘great side’.

Goalkeeper Reina has struggled for form and fitness at times

this season, and that has prompted speculation he could be sold by

Rodgers in the summer.

However, the Spain international has no problems with the

Liverpool boss and is pleased with the direction that the team are

heading in under Rodgers.

“My relationship with the manager is very good,” Reina said in

the Liverpool Echo. “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 am very happy with our manager.

“He is 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.

“There’s no doubt I am more involved with my feet than before

but so is the team. The amount of passes in every game is going

higher and higher compared to last season. It’s a different style

and philosophy – I am happy about it.

“I think given time and as long as the players follow him it

will be good. It will become a great side – one which is difficult

to beat.”
