Aston Villa goalkeeper Reina has dig at ex-Liverpool pair Rodgers, Hodgson

Aston Villa goalkeeper Pepe Reina has lifted the lid on working with two former Liverpool managers.

Answering questions in an Instagram Live Q&A session, the goalkeeper suggested there was a difficult relationship with now Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers, as well as incompatibility with Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson during his brief stint on Merseyside.

"One not bad, but a little touchy is Brendan Rodgers," Reina said when asked who was his worst manager during his career.

"Then with Hodgson I had some difficulties, his way of understanding football was very different from mine."
