Sevilla have announced the death of Jose Antonio Reyes after a car crash on Saturday night in Spain at the age of 35.
“Unfortunately, we announce the death of Reyes in a car accident, to lay in peace,” the club said in a statement.
The Spanish club also mentioned in a later statement the death of Jonathan Reyes, the player’s cousin, in the same incident, offering condolences to the family. Espanyol, who also played for Reyes in the 2016-2017 season, also posted a note expressing his sadness over the death of the Spanish international.
Reyes started his career with the Andalucian club in 2000, then moved to Arsenal in 2004, then returned to Real Madrid and won the Spanish league.
Reyes moved to Atletico in 2007 and spent four years with him until 2011, including Benfica’s loan for a season, and then returned to Sevilla from 2012 to 2016.
Reyes had several experiences with Espanyol, Cordoba, Tianshan, and recently he was playing with Spanish second-division Extremadura, and helped the team survive.
Reyes has a record of tournaments, having won the European Championships in Seville and Atletico, and has won the league in Spain, England and Portugal.
