Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers doesn't think that goalkeeper Pepe Reina will return to the club once his loan period at Napoli finishes, according to the Daily Express.

Reina was shipped out to Napali in the summer after Simon Mignolet transferred from Sunderland. The Spaniard has made 25 appearances this season for the Italian club. Fomer Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is the current manager at Napoli, and it seem that Reina is enjoying playing under Benitez again.

Rodgers believes that Reina's time with Liverpool is coming to a conclusion after the goalkeeper wrote a letter that was posted on his website, explaining his departure.

The Liverpool boss said: "He wrote a goodbye letter didn't he? I was surprised a loan player wrote a letter. I would suspect that he should come back but obviously Pepe made it very clear when he went to Napoli that he was looking to move.

"He penned a great big letter saying he was going to work with the best manager that he'd worked with and thanked us for his time for Liverpool."

The Spaniard moved to Liverpool from Villarreal, when Benitez was in charge, in 2005. He went on to make 284 league appearances for the Reds, keeping 134 clean sheets.

Reina won the FA Cup and the League Cup during his spell at the club. The 31-year-old has also been part of Spain's World Cup and European Championship winning team.
