Pepe Reina says he's accepted the departure of Rafa Benitez from Liverpool.

Reina had a strong working relationship with new Inter Milan coach Benítez, but Iker Casillas's understudy as Spain's goalkeeper said he had come to terms with recent events.

"I've had time to think about it and I guess it's one of those things. Football is football, it happens, and I always say the same thing – Liverpool will remain forever; which is the most important thing," he said.
