Pepe Reina Biography

José Manuel "Pepe" Reina Páez is a Spanish footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Premier League club Liverpool and the Spanish national football team. He is the son of famous FC Barcelona and Atlético Madrid goalkeeper Miguel Reina. Reina began his career with the Barcelona youth team and made his La Liga debut in the 2000–01 season. Two years later, in 2002, he was loaned out to Villarreal, becoming their first-choice goalkeeper and winning the UEFA Intertoto Cup twice. His impressive feats earned him a transfer to Liverpool on July 2005. On 17 August 2005, Reina made his international debut for Spain in a friendly against Uruguay; Spain won 2–0. The season turned out to be successful for Reina as he notched Liverpool records and helped them win the FA Cup. On 16 April 2006, Reina celebrated his 50th appearance for Liverpool by keeping a clean sheet against Blackburn Rovers. In May 2006, Reina was awarded the Premier League's Golden Glove award for keeping 20 clean sheets in the 2005–06 season. After the 2007 Champions League semi-final first-leg against Chelsea, Reina was awarded man of the match by Liverpool supporters. In August 2007, Reina once again won the Premier League's Golden Glove Award for the second time after keeping 19 clean sheets in the 2006–07 Premier League campaign. On 26 February 2012, Reina won his second major honour with Liverpool, beating Cardiff City on penalties in the Football League Cup final. He was part of the team that won the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2008 and 2012 European Championships.
