Liverpool keeper negotiating buy back deal

Published Add your comment

Liverpool’s former goalkeeper Nicholay Mihaylov wants to re sign with the top flight English club and believes nothing will stand in his way, not even current keeper Pepe Reina.

"Liverpool are a huge club," Mihaylov told Bulgarian station Darik Radio.

"It wasn't possible to get a work visa when I went there but now there'll be no such problems because I'm playing regularly in the national team."


Mihaylov was sold to Liverpool in 2007 from Levski Sofia, but because of work visa issues, he was immediately loaned to FC Twente. He stayed on loan with FC Twente for three years before signing with the club permanently last year.

Mihaylov believes a buy back offer is not just a rumour, and has been made by Liverpool before.

"I think it's absolutely real. The option was made when Rafa Benitez was in charge,” he said.

Liverpool’s current keeper, Reina, doesn’t appear to be a problem in Mihaylov’s eyes, with the 22 year old revealing that Reina has wanted to leave for years.

“I know from my agent Pepe Reina wants to go back to Spain," he said.

"His desire dates back one or two years. He's one of the best keepers in the world but his form is not as it should be in a club like Liverpool."
