Liverpool goalkeeper Reina ready to put aside personal glory for team success

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has admitted that he does not really care about clean sheets, as long as his side win, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Reina secured only his third clean sheet in 10 Premier League games with the 2-0 win against West Brom last weekend. During his Liverpool career, the Spaniard had carved a reputation for being hard to beat and achieved 50 league clean sheets in just 92 games, eclipsing a record held by the legendary Liverpool goalkeeper Ray Clemence.

The 29-year-old has won the award for most clean sheets in the Premier League on three occasions, but will happily miss out on a personal accolade if the Reds are successful as a team.

It’s always nice when the team is defending well and we keep a clean sheet. But I just want to win matches and I’d take a 2-1 for us every time. The team is playing really well, so we are confident,” Reina said.
