Pepe Reina has refused to rule out a return to Liverpool in the summer when his loan move at Napoli finishes.

The Spain international moved to the Naples outfit last summer after Brendan Rodgers signed Simon Mignolet in a £9m deal from Sunderland.

But the 31-year-old, who has been linked with Barcelona, was keen to point out that he still has two years remaining on his current Reds deal.

“It was strange but I don’t regret it. The only thing about the letter is that I just could say goodbye in a different way and I couldn’t do it in person.

“There are always up and downs in a career and in the last two and a half years at Liverpool there were different methods and perhaps I didn’t do as good as I used to with Rafa (Benitez). But I don’t think I was ‘bad’.”

On his future, Reina added: “That is what the manager says apparently but I have two years left on my contract.

“Liverpool got another goalkeeper and they told me they were happy to loan me for a season. Liverpool is an offensive team, and they will win more games 3-2 than 1-0, that’s the nature of the team.

“I believe they are really happy with Mignolet, and they are happy going that way, in terms of being that offensive.”
