Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that goalkeeper Pepe Reina will become a better player once he has adapted to Liverpool's new style of play.

Reina has made several errors this season but Rodgers has insisted that the Spanish stopper has impressed him since he arrived at the club during the summer.

Rodgers said: "I can't speak highly enough of Pepe. He's a keeper who has really impressed me. Pepe has been here for a number of years and has proved himself over a long period of time.

"Like all the other players here, he's trying to improve and become a better player. He's obviously adapting to a new style but this is a way of working which is perfect for Pepe.

"He came through the Barcelona model so he understands this way of playing and what I'm trying to do perfectly. As a team, we just need to cut out the kind of mistakes we've been making. If we do that then everyone will benefit from that, including Pepe."

Liverpool are currently 14th in the Premier League table.
