Reina: I couldn't imagine playing for another club

Despite Liverpool's failure to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League, and their slowly fading title hopes, keeper Pepe Reina insists he could not be happier at Anfield.

After five consecutive matches in which he failed to keep a clean sheet as Liverpool dropped ten points in four league games and crashed out of the Champions League, the former Villareal keeper has now kept three clean sheets and is preparing to enter talks to agree a new deal.

"I would like to stay here a long, long time, I am certain about that," Reina, who still has two years remaining on his current contract, said. "I couldn't imagine playing for another club and pulling on another shirt. The club knows how I feel about this, so hopefully there will be some developments soon. I am ready to talk.''

Liverpool, who have also opened talks with midfielder Javier Mascherano over a new deal to ward off Barcelona's interest, now intend to make sure Reina is not tempted to return to his homeland.

"I realise just how lucky I am to represent this club. I couldn't be happier here," Reina said. "My family is well settled down and my children especially feel like Liverpool is home.

"On the football side, I am 27 and have many games behind me. Mentally, I feel ready to take on anything because my experiences - especially at Liverpool - have made me a much stronger person and professional. Right now, I am in one of the best moments of my career.''
