Pepe Reina admits Liverpool have been left with a "big problem" following the departure of Javier Mascherano to Barcelona.

The tough-tackling midfielder sealed a dream move to Barcelona last week, bringing to an end a three-and-a-half year stay at Anfield in which he had proved to be a vital cog in the Liverpool side.

And Reina believes while Barcelona fans are looking forward to seeing him at the Camp Nou, Liverpool are left figuring out how to regroup.

Speaking to El Mundo Deportivo, the shot stopper said: "The departure of Mascherano is a big problem for Liverpool because he is one of the best players of his type on the pitch.

"Javier is very competitive player, very Argentine, who always gives everything when you are on the field.

"He is a footballer who works, works and works. Also, personally, he is a good person even if he is quiet, somewhat introverted.

"He will not create any problem in Barcelona. He could always be counted on, never has generated controversy."
