Reina made 394 appearances for Liverpool between 2005 and 2013 then he moved to Bayern Munich after a loan spell with Napoli. Villa’s boss speaking to the sports media said, “We’ve managed to secure a player in Pepe who has a wealth of premier league experience”. He also added that Pepe fits the criteria they are looking for not just because of his experience but also because of his leadership qualities.
