Reina: I'd swap clean sheets for title

Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina has told Chelsea counterpart Petr Cech he would swap all his clean sheets for one of his league titles. The 26-year-old Spaniard revealed he and Cech were locked in a personal duel to see who could achieve the most shut-outs last season, with Reina's 20 beating the Czech Republic international by one. However, Reina, who is being linked with a £17million move to Barcelona, admits he would happily exchange that feat for a Premier League winners' medal, and told LFC Magazine: "Of course I'd swap the lot." He added: "I had a little challenge going with Petr Cech last season where we would see who could concede the least goals." He added: "Despite our club rivalries, we are both in the goalkeepers' union. "We would send text messages to each other about the clean sheets as well. I told him I would swap all my clean sheets for his league titles. "All we want here at Liverpool is to win the Premier League. I would prefer to win every game 3-2 if it meant we won the title at the end of the season." The Reds won the last of their 18 titles in 1989-90, and have been caught by arch-rivals Manchester United, who equalled their tally at the end of the last campaign.
