Rodgers retains faith in Liverpool goalkeeper Reina

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has given his full backing to under-fire goalkeeper Pepe Reina. The Spain international has had a difficult start to the season at Anfield and has been directly at fault for several of the goals conceded by Rodgers’ men.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo, Rodgers believes that the man who has been a stalwart of consistency between the sticks since his arrival at 2005 will soon cut out the mistakes and return to his best.


I can’t speak highly enough of Pepe,” said Rodgers. “He’s a keeper who has really impressed me. He’s a good guy who comes in and works hard every day. Like all the other players here he’s trying to improve and become a better player. Pepe has been here for a number of years and has proved himself over a period of time.


Rodgers went on to note that Reina’s troubles this season stemmed from the new philosophy he is attempting to introduce at Anfield, where Liverpool are asked to play out from the back including the goalkeeper.


He’s obviously adapting to a new style but this is a way of working which is perfect for Pepe,” continued Rodgers. “He came through the Barcelona model so he understands this way of playing and what I’m trying to do perfectly. He’s working very hard to get in the best possible moment in his game.


Going into the international break, Liverpool have yet to win at Anfield this season in the league under Rodgers and currently lie in 14th place, with only six points from seven matches played.
