Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has been described as the best in the world by his manager Kenny Dalglish as he makes his 300th appearance for the club.

The 28-year-old will reach the milestone in the Europa League second-leg tie against Braga.

Reina joined the club in 2005 from Villarreal and established himself as the number one at the club, winning the Uefa Super Cup and FA Cup at Liverpool

He has been linked with moves away from Anfield most notably to Arsenal and Manchester United but Dalglish is a big fan of the Spaniard.

“In my opinion Pepe Reina is one of, if not the, best keeper in the world,” said Dalglish.

“I know he doesn’t get in his national side, but if it’s my opinion you’re asking for that would be my shout.

“He has been fantastic for this football club and is a great asset to us.

“That is reflected in that if Stevie (Gerrard) or Carra (Jamie Carragher) are not playing, he is our captain.”
