Liverpool keeper Reina loving life with Napoli

Pepe Reina insists he is thoroughly enjoying life in Naples.

The Spanish goalkeeper is on a season-long loan with Napoli from Liverpool and insists he is loving his time spent with former Reds boss Rafael Benitez in a city he really understands.

"I have returned to having fun, with a coach with whom I love to work," he told Diario de la Roja.

"Every day is much easier than it was before. I am happy, I am very well adapted and so is my family.

"The affection of the people is awesome. And then there's a life which is quite different to Liverpool. In Liverpool we did much at home.

"Here we go out a lot more because the weather allows that. There are more opportunities to do things.

"Napoli fits in with my character. My way of being, of living, of thinking, I identify with the way the Neapolitans are."

Since arriving at the Stadio San Paolo from Anfield, Reina has made a total of 28 appearances with 20 coming in Serie A, three in the Coppa Italia and five in Europe.
