Pepe Reina addresses Liverpool fans

Pepe Reina addresses Liverpool fans

In an open letter addressed to Liverpool fans, Pepe Reina has told he was forced to leave Liverpool and was never asked his opinion.

‘It is only natural that I would be disappointed that the Liverpool management agreed to loan me to Napoli without telling me first, I thought that I deserved better than that even though I understand that difficult decisions have to be taken in football.
‘A lot has been made about me informing the club that if an offer came in from Barcelona that I would have liked them to consider it.
‘But I had also spoken to the club about the possibility of extending my contract if the offer was not made.
‘I told the manager that I wanted to play for Liverpool and that Barcelona would only become an option for me if the opportunity arrived, like the rumours said it would, as it would be a chance for me to go back home.
‘When it didn’t come I was happy to fight for my place so I was surprised that Liverpool decided it was in the club´s interests to send me to Napoli instead.’
‘I consider Rafa Benitez to be the best manager I have worked with, and I am fortunate to be going from one great club to another.’
