Liverpool No1 Reina: Tough being out of Champions League

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina admits he's frustrated not being involved in this season's Champions League.

For the second successive season the Reds are not in Europe's premier competition and for a club which has won the tournament five times - the last famously in 2005 - that is difficult to accept.

However, after a couple of years of under-investment in the squad the last 10 months have seen a significant strengthening in playing resources and has raised hopes Liverpool can regain their top-four status.

"I like to watch football and any chance to watch a decent game I do," said the Spain goalkeeper at the launch of his book Pepe, My Autobiography.

"I would like to watch a Champions League game on Tuesday at 12 midnight with Liverpool having played just before but unfortunately at the moment it is any English or Spanish team at 7.45pm."
