Reina Wears Balotelli Pyjamas

Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina has admitted that he now
wears Mario Balotelli’s AC
Milan shirt in bed after
becoming the first player to
save a penalty from the Italy
striker.
Reina made the vital save
during Napoli’s recent 2-1 over the Rossoneri at San
Siro and proceeded to ask Balotelli for his jersey after
the game.
The 31-year-old told Onda Cero: “I wear very special pyjamas now.
“It is made up of the Milan shirt Balotelli was wearing
when I saved his penalty and some Napoli shorts.
“After saving the penalty, I couldn’t resist asking him
for his jersey, as it was an historic event. He gave it to
me and I brought it here to create an unusual pyjama
kit.”
The Spain international joined the Naples club on a
season-long loan deal from Liverpool during the
summer and revealed his secret behind keeping out a
Balotelli spot-kick.
He continued: “How did I save the penalty? By waiting
one second more than Mario did. His strength from the
spot is that he’s so calm he is able to wait until the last
second before deciding where to place the ball and how
to hit it. I waited more than he did and it went well.”
Napoli are currently unbeaten in Serie A having won six
of their opening seven fixtures and trail leaders Roma
by two points.
