Pepe Reina sends message to Liverpool fans after Brendan Rodgers sacking
Former Reds goalkeeper Pepe Reina tells Liverpool fans he wants to see the club return to their former glory
Pepe Reina says he wants to see Liverpool return to their former glory following Brendan Rodgers’s exit.
The 18-time English champions sacked the Northern Irishman following a 1-1 draw with Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
The Napoli goalkeeper left the Merseyside outfit after a seven-year stay under Rodgers’s reign, joining the Serie A side on loan in 2013 before the shot stopper moved to Bayern Munich in a permanent deal in 2014.
However, Reina, who returned to Napoli on a free transfer in the summer, still has a soft spot for Liverpool, taking to Twitter to react to Rodgers’s sacking.
I will always be a fan & all I want now is to see the old Liverpool come back for the players and the supporters who deserve the best. YNWA

Reina won the FA Cup and finished as a Champions League runner-up during his eight-year stay at Anfield.
The Spanish goalkeeper was signed from Villarreal in a £6m deal in 2005 by former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.
Reina left the Reds after Rodgers signed Simon Mignolet in a £9m deal from Sunderland in 2013.
