Pepe ready to die for Liverpool

PEPE Reina has promised there'll be no mass desertion of Anfield's sinking ship if Liverpool's catastrophic season gets any worse.

Rafa Benitez's men are facing the humiliation of Europa League football following their midweek woe in Lyon.

Failure to finish in the top four is sure to lead to fresh speculation about an Anfield exodus involving Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard and Javier Mascherano.

They know their place is in the Champions League.

But Reina wants to pledge his long-term future to Liverpool no matter what the rest of the season holds and is sure others will stick by the deals they signed a year ago.

"People talk all the time about bringing in more big signings but I see a squad here of 25 good players who all want to be at Liverpool," said Reina.

"My commitment to Liverpool is 100 per cent.

"I would die for that Liverpool shirt. I think the club loves me and I feel the same, no matter what the situation. I can't say any more than that.

"Nobody has offered me a new contract yet but it is my wish to sign so we'll see what happens when we talk.

"I don't want to even think about not being in the Champions League. If that's what happens, okay we'll have to think about that next season.

"But I remain optimistic about the reaction of this team.

"What we need is to pull the strings together.

"I don't even think about the top four. I think only about winning trophies. We know we have to start winning games again starting on Monday.

"Before we can do anything else we must think of winning the next game and take it step by step. There's no point worrying about where we will be in April at this stage of the season because what we need is a win."
