Former Barcelona goalkeeper coach Frans Hoek believes Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina is the man to succeed Victor Valdes.

Reina is currently on-loan at Napoli and is expected to move to the Nou Camp next summer when Valdes comes off contract.

"Pepe is the best option for Barca because the club needs a goalie with confidence, who is of a high standard and can play the system that suits Barca.

"Reina, therefore, is the best option," said Hoek.
