Reina Happy At Liverpool

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina says he is happy at Anfield, amid speculation linking him to Barcelona.

Reina started his career in the Barca youth system, and his father also played for the Catalan club.

He has enjoyed a roller-coaster few seasons at Liverpool, but has found his best form of late.

Barca are on the hunt for a new ‘keeper to replace want-away Victor Valdes, and Reina is one of their rumoured targets.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has gone on record to say that he sees Reina as an integral part of his Liverpool plans.

And so Rodgers will pleased to hear that Reina is not agitating for a move to the Camp Nou, after a season in which Liverpool kept an impressive 16 clean sheets.

“I have three more years [contract] with Liverpool. I am satisfied, I like it there, and my family are delighted,” 30-year-old Reina told Radio Cadena Ser.

"Rumours are difficult to control, but you are flattered when a club like Barcelona is interested. I know the club perfectly, I grew up there. Everyone should realise that anyone would be excited about playing for a club like Barça.

"I do not know if there have been contacts between the clubs or with my agent. My representatives look after all this, and up until there is something very strong I do not get worked up about it.

"So at the moment I do not believe there has been anything serious."
