Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina is desperate to see Roy Hodgson keep the squad together.

Reina has begged ­Liverpool’s star trio Steven ­Gerrard, Javier Mascherano and Fernando Torres not to quit ­Anfield this summer after all three players have been linked with moves away.

But keeper Reina said: “Men like Fernando, Javier and ­Gerrard are vital in this new project and not only on the pitch – but also because they are ­footballers who are now very much a part of Liverpool’s history.

“Without the three of them our situation will be very ­different.

“And with the ­international money crisis, it would be very complicated to find perfect replacements.’’
