Osim za Sevillu, Reyes je igrao i za Arsenal, Real Madrid i Atletico Madrid. U španjolskom nacionalnom dresu odigrao je 21 utakmicu i zabio je četiri gola.
Kako javlja Index, od Reyesovih kolega, vijest je prvi na Twitteru komentirao Sergio Ramos, Realov kapetan i jedan od reyesovih najboljih prijatelja.
“Slomljen. Uništen. Nemam riječi. Želim izraziti sućut njegovoj obitelji. Uvijek ću te se sjećati, brate moj”, stoji u Ramosovoj poruci.
Od Reyesa su se, osim Seville, oprostili i mnogi drugi europski klubovi poput Barcelone, Milana, Betisa, Liverpoola, Arsenala i Benfice i brojni kolege.
FC Barcelona wishes to express their deepest condolences for the death of footballer José Antonio Reyes, a brilliant and charismatic player; one of the most outstanding figures and with a great trajectory in football. Rest in peace.
