The Reds received a massive £50million for the Spanish striker and his fellow countryman Reina feels the Anfield outfit did even better from the deal as they managed to bring in Luis Suarez who he believes is a better player.
"Fernando is top class; Luis is as good or even better than Fernando," said the Reds goalkeeper, speaking at the launch of his book Pepe: My Autobiography.
"Those players are really special. You don't find those kind of players very often.
"The club did a good job in signing Luis and hopefully he will be many years with us and hopefully he will score as many goals as Fernando."
