Reina confirms desire to stay at Liverpool

The Spanish goalkeeper has returned to the club following a loan spell at Napoli and, despite the presence of Simon Mignolet and Brad Jones, is keen to stay at Anfield
Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has committed his future to Liverpool, despite claiming that he would like to retire in Spain.

A loan spell at Serie A outfit Napoli last season - when he linked up with former Reds boss Rafael Benitez - put a question mark over his Liverpool future, with Simon Mignolet assuming his position in goal.

However upon his recall to Merseyside, Reina insists he intends to respect his contract at Anfield - which expires in 2016 - before eventually heading back to Spain.

"I have a contract to respect with Liverpool," Reina told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser. "I'm training well and I am perfectly fine with my team-mates.

"I am here to stay.

"I have not talked to Brendan Rodgers, I've been here for only four days and I am just thinking of training to my best and getting back into shape."

Reina, 31, began his career at Barcelona, before a stint at Villarreal preceded his move to the Premier League and he admits he would like to return to La Liga should the opportunity arise.

"It's normal though that over the years you want to return to where you came from," Reina added.

"When Rafa Benitez signed me at Liverpool in 2005, I accepted and said that I would be back a little later in Spain."
