Reina unsure over Reds future

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina admits he is not sure where he will play next season after completing his one-year loan spell with Napoli.

Reina, who is currently training with Spain in preparation for the World Cup, has two years left on his current contract with Liverpool.

The 31-year-old was recently linked with a return to La Liga after a solid campaign with Napoli.

"Right now I'm only thinking of La Roja (Spain's national team)," Reina said to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

"With regards to a new club, I will first have to speak to Liverpool.

"My season on loan at Napoli has been very positive and I thank the Napoli people and the club.

"With Barcelona there is nothing, they have just acquired (German goalkeeper) Marc-Andre ter Stegen, hence they have that role covered.

"I haven't had any contact either with Atletico Madrid, I think they will do all they can to keep (Thibaut) Courtois.

"I will return to be a Liverpool player but I think I'm not in the coaching plans."

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has indicated he does not see a future for Reina at Anfield.

The Spaniard made 30 league appearances to help Napoli finish third in Serie A and qualify for the Champions League.
