Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina is not about to quite the club in the January transfer window, according to his agent.
The Spain international has had a troublesome start to the season, making sloppy mistakes against Arsenal and Hearts that led directly to the Reds conceding.
Reports last week suggested new Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers had told Reina to improve by January, or he would seek out a replacement.
However, the ‘keeper’s agent, Manuel Garcia Quinn, insisted his client was not on the way out at Merseyside and was only concentrating on improving his form and ding all he can to get Liverpool back to winning ways.
“He is not having an easy time. The team has not started the season well and liability is falling on him,” he said.
“But this will end when he returns to form. He has four years to run on his contract and rumours of leaving Liverpool are just that - rumours.”
The 30-year-old will be hoping the international break has helped to re-focus and prompt a return to performing at the standards that have seen him hailed as one of the best goalkeepers in the league.
Liverpool’s entire defence have started this season badly and individual mistakes have cost them dear, leaving them with just one draw and two losses from their opening three fixtures.
