      The only reason for bringing him back would be as #3-cum-mentor behind Alisson and Ward, after the sales of Karius and Mignolet.

      Would it happen? I think not.
      Wow, I wouldn’t envy him if that were his role.

      We got the best out of Pepe Reina,I think it's best to remember him for what he did  not what he could do.

      Not sure what he’s like now, but he was amazing for us. Just think, BR ousted him for Migs... criminal

      I totally agree with your post regarding Migs replacing Pepe.

      Liverpool are set for a shock swoop for one of their cult heroes - Spanish keeper Pepe Reina.

      The popular 35-year-old is set to leave Napoli at the end of the season - even if they claim the title.


      He was set to join AC Milan, but now Spanish sources Marca believe the move could be hijacked - by Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool.

      Liverpool will look to ditch second choice keeper Simon Mignolet in the summer, and there are still doubts over current incumbent Loris Karius.

      Reina's experience of the Premier League is a major plus for Klopp.

      Surprised by this. Yes, no?

      Keep moving forwards.

      Agree Pepe was brilliant for us, but now ? I’m not so sure he’s still as good as he was. Not watched him mind, just thinking of old Father Time!
      35 is he? What’s he got, 2-3 seasons, and not in his prime either.
      Love him for his time with us, but think it’s a bit late now.
      Oh, and B R needed shafting for what he did. I think he only tried to emulate Rafa with Dudek and Pepe.
      Going from class to crass didn’t quite work for him though.

      Whilst Mignolet has been a failure I can remember Reina’s form dropping considerably compared to the form he showed in his first few seasons at the club.

      Difficult to judge if that was purely down to a decline or the problems between him and Brendan.

      Brendan clearly didn't fancy him for whetever reason and maybe that affected his game.

      His form for us wasn't great in his last two seasons for us. During Kenny's first full year he let loads in from the near post. Coincides with the time Achterberg was promoted to GK coach.

      And Reina is the third best Spanish keeper? I find that very very surprising.

      Why? He has experience and is still a good keeper on the back of a good season.

      The funny thing about Pepe is - and I’ve kept a reasonably close eye on him since he left - that his form is definitely better than in his last couple of seasons here.

      He was definitely distracted - albeit still better than Migs in my opinion - in his last couple of seasons.

      Came disillusioned when Rafa went I expect, he came out and said he’d hoped Pellegrini would be the one to replace him and was disappointed that it wasn’t. To be honest, who’s form wouldn’t take a hit playing under Woy and seeing your team go from the likes of Masch and Alonso to Poulsen and Adam etc. Then being ditched for Migs is a kick to the nuts.

      I think we were all very disappointed when the Pellegrini link didn't materialise...including Kenny who was the one pushing for it to the extent that he met up with him at an airport, only to be overruled by Purslow and co because Hodgson was 'the man'. The mind still boggles as to how that decision was made. I can only think we fell victim to a parochial English mindset by way of Purslow who probably didn't want any more 'foreign nonsense'. Far better to hire a yes man who was just grateful to be hired than anything else.

      That we were.

      I’ve often wondered if Kenny threw his hat in at time to try to force them to slow down........

      I'm sure I've read somewhere that Pepe is moving to AC Milan, could that be a rumor, too?
      If we're looking for a GK, I would prefer to have a younger and hopefully better GK than Pepe.

      It’s confirmed he’s going to Milan.
