Rodgers heaps praise on Pepe
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists he has no fears over keeper Pepe Reina's form.
The Spanish keeper has come in for criticism of late following notable errors against Arsenal, Norwich and Hearts. Rodgers is unconcerned by Reina's form and insists the 30-year-old will soon be back to his best. The Northern Irishman believes all of his players have been guilty of making mistakes and feels Reina's performances will pick up when all the players are more comfortable with his style of play. "I can't speak highly enough of Pepe," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo. "He's a keeper who has really impressed me. He's a good guy who comes in and works hard every day." He added: "He's obviously adapting to a new style but this is a way of working which is perfect for Pepe. He came through the Barcelona model so he understands this way of playing and what I'm trying to do perfectly. "He's working very hard to get in the best possible moment in his game. As a team, we just need to cut out the kind of mistakes we've been making. If we do that then everyone will benefit from that, including Pepe." Reina has been included in the Spain squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Belarus and France but is unlikely to start ahead of Real Madrid's Iker Casillas and Barcelona's Victor Valdes.
