Reina's Red letter day

Jose Reina's Liverpool career appears to be over after manager Brendan Rodgers suggested the goalkeeper will not be returning to Anfield this summer.

The Spain international joined Napoli on loan in July after the Reds signed Simon Mignolet from Sunderland, but has two years left on his contract and is due back on Merseyside at the end of the season.

Rodgers, however, does not believe the 31-year-old wants to return, citing an 1,105-word open letter that Reina posted on his website on July 29 last year, shortly after his reunion with former boss Rafael Benitez in Italy was agreed.

"He's already written his letter," Rodgers said. "He wrote a goodbye letter didn't he? I was surprised a loan player wrote a letter."
