Pepe Reina to renew his contract with Villarreal

According to Relevo, veteran goalkeeper Pepe Reina will renew his contract with Villarreal for another year, with the possibility of the option to extend for a further year after that.

The 40-year-old Spaniard has been the starting goalkeeper for Villarreal this season, playing 22 league games. His performances have been solid and justified an extension to his contract.

The ex-Bayern, Liverpool and Barcelona player recently played his 1,000th match as a professional – an incredible achievement – and he shows no signs of slowing down.

Next season will be his 24th season in first-team football. Reina has played for eight clubs in his career, and made 36 appearances for the Spanish national team.

The shot-stopper kept five clean sheets in La Liga this season as Villarreal finished fifth and narrowly missed out on a Champions League spot. They will want to push on next season, and be hoping that manager Quique Setién can guide them back into Europe’s top competition.
