Jose Antonio Reyes was a Spanish professional footballer who played mainly as a left winger.

 

He made his professional debut for Sevilla at only 16, signing for Arsenal in January 2004. He became one of the ‘Invincibles’ when Arsenal won the Premier League title undefeated in 2003-04 season.

 

He returned to Spain after two years, going on to represent the two largest clubs in Madrid, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, and winning La Liga with the former.

 

Reyes rejoined Sevilla late in his career and winning the Europa League three times in a row from 2014 to 2016, for a record total of five.

Oh my goodness.. How could this happen… I still remember when we were in a sports shop in Knightsbridge 2004, a young Jose Antonio Reyes was in there, my wife gave me a pen and my two sons and I got his autograph… a minute later, a tap on my shoulder, it was Jose, in broken English “you forgot your pen sir”. RIP Antonio, you will be always in our hearts

Jose Antonio Reyes was the first Arsenal player I met outside of a match. Very sad to hear he has sadly passed away today. I was 15, in Wood Green’s Footlocker when I saw him walk in with his family. He’d just joined Arsenal and I was excited beyond reason. By the time I summed up the courage to ask for this autograph, he’d already left the store. I was distraught. Quickly, I asked one the members of staff for a pen and chased him down the street screaming “REYES! REYES! WAIT!” After catching up with him, he looked a bit perplexed… He didn’t speak English so i just pointed at the pen. Again he looked confused, so I took off my jumper to reveal my Arsenal shirt. He said “Ohhhh” and something else in Spanish that made his family laugh, with that cheeky grin of his. Of course he signed it. Genuinely one of the happiest moments of my life 💔 Also, I kinda looked like him growing up. Back in secondary school, a lot of younger kids called me “Reyes”. Very sad day today.

It’s so sad that the football world has been crying lately despite the great comeback matches. The place crash of Sala, the heart attack of Casillas and now Reyes is gone. Let us send prayers of strength to the family. R.I.P Reyes
