Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson claims he has no problems with goalkeeper Jose Reina suggesting he will reassess his position at Anfield at the end of the season.
Reports emerged which suggested the Spain international had said he was staying at the club "until at least the end of the season".
But Hodgson was not worried by those reported comments.
"That is fair enough, what's wrong with that?" he said. "There is always spin put on these things but as far as I am concerned we are very happy to have Pepe Reina and I hope he will stay a lot longer than that.
"If at the end of the season he doesn't want to play for Liverpool any more then we'd have to deal with that situation when we come to it.
"But I don't understand why, seven or eight months from the date I'm being asked to give my opinion on it. He is an excellent goalkeeper and I hope he plays for Liverpool for years and years to come."
