Reina thanks Napoli fans

Pepe Reina said goodbye to Napoli fans after signing for Bayern Munich. “Forza Napoli always.”

The goalkeeper spent last season on loan from Liverpool, helping the Partenopei to victory in the Coppa Italia.

Reina showed how well he adapted to Italian culture by referencing a film in his farewell tweets.

“What the friends of Benvenuti al Sud say is absolutely true: ‘When a foreigner goes to the south he cries twice: once when he arrives and again when he leaves.’

“Thank you from the heart to all the Neapolitan fans for the grit, affection and love that you showed me.

“It was a marvellous season! Forza Napoli always.”
