Jerzy Dudek may well have been the hero of the Reds Champions League success in 2005, but that didn’t prevent Rafael Benitez splashing £6million on a new goalkeeper the same summer.
That goalkeeper was Spaniard Pepe Reina, who would go on to serve nine years at Anfield.
Reina was a part of a Liverpool defence that had the best record for clean sheets three years running, whilst he also saved three penalties in the 2006 FA Cup final.
Reina was also a key member of the side that finished Champions League runners up in 2007 (with penalty saves against Chelsea in the semi final this time) and Premier League runners up in 2008-09, whilst he also claimed a League Cup winners medal during his time at Anfield.Like what the TT have on offer?
