Reina unhappy about going to Italy

6:46 am on 30 July 2013

The Spanish international goalkeeper Pepe Reina says he's disappointed that Liverpool has agreed to loan him to Italian club without telling him first.

30-year-old Reina has joined the Italians for the season after the Reds signed Simon Mignolet from Sunderland.

In a letter to Liverpool fans, Reina says he wanted to continue his eight-year stay at Anfield once a move to Barcelona failed to materialise.

Reina, the first choice at Liverpool until last season, might well have found himself on the bench for much of the coming campaign following the signing of Mignolet.
