Pepe Reina 'will return to be a Liverpool player' after giving up on Barcelona and Atletico Madrid moves
The Spaniard spent last season on loan at Napoli
Wednesday 28 May 2014
Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina admits he is not sure where he will play next season after completing his one-year loan spell with Napoli.
Reina, who is currently training with Spain in preparation for the World Cup, has two years left on his current contract with Liverpool.
The 31-year-old was recently linked with a return to La Liga after a solid campaign with Napoli.
"Right now I'm only thinking of La Roja (Spain's national team)," Reina said to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.
"With regards to a new club, I will first have to speak to Liverpool.
"My season on loan at Napoli has been very positive and I thank the Napoli people and the club.
"With Barcelona there is nothing, they have just acquired (German goalkeeper) Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, hence they have that role covered.
"I haven't had any contact either with Atletico Madrid, I think they will do all they can to keep (Thibaut) Courtois.
"I will return to be a Liverpool player but I think I'm not in the coaching plans."
Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has indicated he does not see a future for Reina at Anfield.
The Spaniard made 30 league appearances to help Napoli finish third in Serie A and qualify for the Champions League.
