Brendan Rodgers has revealed he does not expect goalkeeper Pepe Reina to return to Liverpool after his loan spell at Napoli ends.
The Spain international was reunited with his former boss Rafa Benitez in Italy and replaced at Anfield by Simon Mignolet.
He has two years left on his current contract with the Reds but Rodgers says he believes the open letter that he put on his website last summer shows that he will not be coming back to the club.
"He's already written his letter," Rodgers said. "He wrote a goodbye letter, didn't he? I was surprised a loan player wrote a letter.
"I would suspect that he should come back but obviously Pepe made it very clear when he went to Napoli that he was looking to move.
"He penned a great big letter saying he was going to work with the best manager that he'd worked with and thanked us for his time for Liverpool.
"So for me it probably sounded like he'd made his decision there."
