Pepe Reina is urging Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard not to quit Anfield. Gerrard has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid and speculation has increased since Jose Mourinho took over the reigns as the former Chelsea manager is a long-time admirer of the Liverpool captain.
Reina has begged him not to abandon Anfield for the Bernabeu.
"I understand that something will happen, that Real Madrid's interest in Gerrard will become manifest because Mourinho knows him very well and he is a footballer who can play in any team in the world.
"He is part of the elite, among the 10 best in the world because he is a very complete footballer. Let's hope they don't take him away."
