Jose Manuel Reina (Goalkeeper)
LFC Career: 2005 – Present
Honours: 1 FA Cup
Current Liverpool custodian Jose Manuel ‘Pepe’ Reina, son of former Spanish international Miguel Reina, has proven himself to be one of the world’s finest goalkeepers since moving to Anfield in the summer of 2005. Labelled “the best goalkeeper in Spain” by former manager Rafael Benitez upon his arrival at the club, Reina has managed to bring a level of calm and assuredness to the Reds’ rearguard not seen since the days of Ray Clemence. Blessed with unrivalled shot-stopping and distribution abilities, the charismatic Spaniard has claimed four Golden Glove awards in five of his seasons on Merseyside, as well as becoming the fastest goalkeeper to achieve 100 clean sheets in the club’s history. The goalkeeper has been touted by many as a future captain of the club; such is his love and affection for Liverpool.
