Hodgson: No problem with Reina remarks

10 November 2010 07:33
Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has admitted he has no issues with the recent comments made by number one goalkeeper Jose Reina. The Spain international suggested he would remain at the club until the end of the season at least, leaving journalists believing his lack of future planning could signal the end of his Anfield career. But Hodgson insists he is unconcerned with his remarks. "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 anymore 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. "If he doesn't want to play for years and years to come we'll deal with the situation when it occurs."
