Spaniard desperate to compete for top honours

Pepe Reina has refused to pledge his allegiance to Liverpool, hinting that the Reds may not be competitive enough anymore.

The Merseyside outfit began the season poorly and at one stage even found themselves in the relegation zone, but they have since mounted a resurrection of sorts under manager Kenny Dalglish - and are now chasing fifth place, which would guarantee another run in the Europa League, from which they were eliminated in midweek.

But with fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur currently seven points ahead of Liverpool and only nine games remaining, the five-times European champions could miss out on playing in a continental competition next season.

"It’s not about being patient, it is about the club winning and I want to be competitive," said Reina, according to The Mirror.

"All I can do is train hard and do my best, but who knows what is going to happen here?"
