#premierleaguestories – #PepeReina shares insight on last days of Liverpool #LFC tenure
Aston Villa goalkeeper Pepe Reina has aimed a jibe at Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers following their time together at Liverpool. Reina’s career at Anfield came to an end under Rodgers, and asked this week for the worst manager he played for, the City boss was the first that came to the Spaniard’s mind.
Pepe Reina said “The worst? One not bad, but a little touchy is Brendan Rodgers, Then with [Roy] Hodgson, I had some difficulties, his way of understanding football was very different from mine.”
Reina left Liverpool on loan for Napoli under Rodgers in 2013, with Simon Mignolet signed as his replacement a summer earlier, when it was expected Reina would leave for Barcelona. With two number ones at the club, Rodgers had to make his choice, at Mignolet got the nod.
