The global health crisis has stopped football activities in the Premier League since March and the break has given Pepe Reina an ample amount of time to give several interviews and do Q&As with fans.

In the winter market, Aston Villa took the goalkeeper on a loan deal from AC Milan.

The Spaniard has been the first-choice stopper at Villa Park due to the absence of Tom Heaton, who suffered a serious injury.

His temporary stay with Dean Smith’s side lasts until the end of this campaign and Villa don’t have an option to make his transfer permanent in the summer.

On Monday, Reina was the guest on Che Fatica La Vita Da Bomber‘s Instagram live session and TuttoMercatoWeb have relayed the comments made by the custodian.

Regarding his future, he said: “After the loan spell with Aston Villa, I have to go back.”

When quizzed if he will return to Napoli before he retires, he explained: “I think it will be tough. I have 1-2 years left in my career. I think my time in football will end after next year in Milan.

“You never know in the future, but as a player I won’t have a chance. As a coach, who knows.”

Reina was at Liverpool between 2005 and 2014 and explained he grew a lot under Rafael Benítez.

When discussing the managers he struggled under, the player said, “The worst? One not bad, but a little touchy is Brendan Rodgers. Then with Hodgson I had some difficulties, his way of understanding football was very different from mine. The best? Kenny Dalglish and Del Bosque.”
