Pepe Reina Understands Luis Suarez’s Plight

Pepe Reina has admitted he can understand Luis Suarez’s desire to leave Liverpool, but hopes his teammate will remain at Anfield.

The Uruguayan international has been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield, citing media pressure and the toll it has taken on his family as a strong factor in his desire to relocate. With Real Madrid rumored to be a potential suitor, it is understood Liverpool will demand in the region of £50million to any club that hopes to sign the former Ajax player.

Reina, who is currently on international duty with Spain ahead of games against Haiti and the Republic of Ireland, conceded he is sympathetic to the plight of his teammate.

“I haven’t read Luis himself say he wants out of Liverpool to be honest,” Reina said.” He might say that the times have been a little bit rough and the media has been having a bit of a go at him. In the past it’s been difficult for him and his family.

“To be honest, I would like for Luis to stay at Liverpool, but I understand if he’s thinking about leaving for something bigger – when I say bigger I mean not as a club, just challenging for titles and playing in the Champions League and competing with the best.

“Because of the situation, because of the treatment by the media, it would be difficult for any player, not just Luis, to stay strong and be happy. Hopefully he will stay at Liverpool for many years, but I understand if the right offer comes for him and for the club for him to go.”

    i think he should leave. a player of his quality should be playing champions league. he’ll never do that with liverpool. the media treat him very badly as well.
