Pepe Reina sleeps in Balotelli's shirt after saving penalty

After becoming the first goalkeeper to save a Mario Balotelli penalty, Napoli's Pepe Reina asked for the striker's shirt - which he now sleeps in.

After saving Mario’s penalty I couldn’t not ask for his shirt. It was a historic event.

He gave me it and I’ve brought it home to create an unusual pair of pyjamas. I sleep with his shirt and Napoli shorts.
