'Hard to find someone like Albiol'

Pepe Reina has lavished praise on Napoli teammate Raul Albiol, claiming that the defender is underrated.

The Spanish pair joined the Partenoepi this summer from Liverpool and Real Madrid respectively.

And the shot-stopper has insisted that his defensive partner is one of the best around.

“Albiol? He is a player that is completely underrated by the media,” Reina told Marca. “Just because he does not speak out.

“He always does what he’s asked. He is dominant in the air, quick and knows how to use his feet.

“There are few players that can read the game like him – it’s difficult to find a player like him around nowadays.”
