Liverpool goalkeeper Alexander Doni has admitted he is unsure if he will still be playing under Kenny Dalglish next season.
It does not look the best timing by the Reds’ stand in stopper as he is expected to start in place of the suspended Pepe Reina for the visit of Aston Villa to Anfield next weekend.
Doni has not featured in a competitive game this season under Dalglish and his free transfer form Roma appears to have been a mistake – the Brazilian admitted to missing the Italian capital, citing the weather on Merseyside as a factor.
“Next year, I do not know where I will play, being on the bench is not great,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“Liverpool have changed so much. There have been lots of ups and downs, but I'm learning the language and the experience is beautiful.
“I miss Roma a lot because it always rains here in Liverpool.”
Regular number one Reina will be missing due to picking up a three-game suspension following a red card for violent conduct.
His dismissal came in Sunday’s loss to Newcastle United at St James’ Park, where he appeared to head-butt Toon defender James Perch, who has since been criticised for his overreaction to minimal contact.
As well as missing the league fixture with Aston Villa, the Spain international will also be absent for Liverpool’s FA Cup semi-final with Merseyside rivals Everton.
