Napoli keeper Reina offers no excuses for Porto defeat

Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina had no complaints after their Europa League defeat to Porto.

Reina pulled off some stunning reaction saves and was rescued by the woodwork, but was beaten by Jackson Martinez in the first leg of this Round of 16.

"Porto are a team who move the ball around well and in the first half we waited for them so we could go on the counter," Reina told Mediaset.

"When we had to ball, though, we didn't use it well and tended to lose possession too quickly.

"In the second half we had a few chances, though I have to say it is a bad result, but a fair one."
