Spanish goalkeeper Pepe Reina says that there is "no reason" to think that he has a future at Liverpool after being loaned out to Napoli for the season.

Pepe Reina has said that he finds it "difficult" to imagine a future at Liverpool.

The 31-year-old was loaned out to Napoli for the season following the arrival of Simon Mignolet, who was bought from Sunderland for a fee of £9m.

Although he does not regret his move to the Stadio San Paolo, Reina admits that he would have liked his Anfield exit to have been handled better.

"At the moment it's difficult to think about being a Liverpool player next year," he told the Daily Mail. "They have a young goalkeeper in Simon Mignolet and the manager prefers him to me.

"That's the reason why I'm here and he will be at the club next year as well. There's no reason to think I'll be a Liverpool player from now on but we'll see where the future takes us.

"It's been a good move so far and I don't regret what happened. I would have preferred to say goodbye in a different way."

The Spanish international has been mooted as a potential replacement for Victor Valdes at Barcelona.
