Liverpool FC might put Pepe Reina on sale during the mid-season transfer window in January. The Spaniard didn’t manage to perform well in the ongoing season so far and the manager of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers, is said to be unhappy with the performance of Reina.
Reina made a number of mistakes in the matches against Arsenal and Hearts. There are two other goalkeepers in the Liverpool squad in the form of Alexander Doni and Brad Jones. If the Spaniard keeps making mistakes in the further matches, Rodgers might think of replacing him with Doni or Jones.
Reina has been with Liverpool since the last seven seasons. He had joined the club in July 2005. Liverpool had to pay 6 million pounds for buying Reina from Villarreal. Reina played his first match for Liverpool against The New Saints. That was a Champions League qualifier and Reina performed quite well in his debut match. In his very first season for Liverpool, Reina caught everyone’s eyes by making some brilliant saves. He didn’t take too much time in cementing his place in the Liverpool’s first XI. He has been an integral part of the Liverpool’s first team since the last 7 years and he always delivered for the club. But, in this season, he is looking completely out of touch. He is looking rusty and hasn’t yet managed to show his class in the ongoing season.
During the pre season transfer window, there were rumours that AC Milan was interested in Reina and the Spaniard might think of joining Milan. But, Reina had ended all those rumours by saying that he was totally committed to Liverpool and he didn’t want to leave the club. But, it seems that Reina would have to leave Liverpool if he doesn’t show improvement in his performances before January.
