PEPE REINA remains convinced that manager Brendan Rodgers will bring success to Liverpool.

Last week’s Europa League exit at the hands of Zenit St Petersburg ended the Reds’ hopes of silverware this season.

However, the Spanish keeper says he’s relishing working with the Northern Irishman and insists the club are making progress.

“I have a great relationship with him,” Reina said.

“We have a lot of ideas in common and the way we see football is quite similar. Our understanding about tactics and feeling for football is very similar. I’m very happy with our manager.

“It’s about learning and he’s certainly making sure we learn every day in training about ways to win. That’s important because at the end of the day, what you want to do is win. If you play good football, you’ll definitely be closer to winning more games.

“That’s where we are and my relationship with the manager is very good. If the players follow the philosophy, we’ll definitely become a great side – a difficult and strong side to beat and a competitive one.

“There is no doubt that I am more involved with my feet than before, but so is the whole team. The amount of passes in every game is higher and higher compared to last season. It’s a different style and I am happy with it.”
