Perception Vs. Reality - On Pepe Reina Leaving LFC

To the consternation of much of the red-half of Merseyside, Liverpool FC goalkeeper Pepe Reina announced that he would be taking his talents to Napoli on season-long loan. (Okay, that’s not quite how he phrased it.) News of Reina’s imminent move away from Anfield came abruptly while the club was in the middle of a pre-season tour in Asia. With what seemed like little warning, one of Liverpool’s most loved players in recent history was consigned to depart without the opportunity for a proper send-off from the Anfield faithful. Reina’s departing letter to fans indicated that he left with a bitter taste in his mouth and was frustrated at the treatment he received by the club’s management. Certainly, Pepe Reina merited more than an abrupt announcement regarding his imminent departure on loan; but this move, whether dictated by manager Brendan Rodgers or other segments of the club’s leadership, is in keeping with the new Liverpool “project” championed by the owners in Fenway Sports Group and Rodgers himself.
