Liverpool's Alberto Moreno Pays Tribute To Jose Antoino Reyes With Touching T-Shirt

Alberto Moreno paid tribute to his ex-Sevilla teammate Jose Antonio Reyes following the Champions League final.

Reyes tragically passed away in a car accident on Saturday and Moreno wore a t-shirt in his memory during Liverpool's Champions League celebrations.

The Spaniard honoured the late Reyes with an emotional top.

The passing of Reyes struck the football family including Cesc Fabregas who posted a heart-felt message.

"My first great friend in the world of professional football, my roommate, who always wanted to sleep with the air conditioning even at -10 degrees," he wrote on social media.

"A humble guy who always had a smile on his face, great footballer and great person. I could not wake up today in a worse way. I will never forget when you and your family welcomed me at your home in my first Christmas in England when I was alone and was 16 years old.

"I will never forget our tennis football matches in the gym before and after workouts. Our connection in the field was also special, since it was always easy to find yourself between the lines so you could make the difference.

"I always say that you have been one of the greatest talents in football and I know that I am not wrong. 2 days ago I was talking about you in an interview, it might be a sign, who knows, to remember you, my great friend.

"I will never forget you, we will never forget you. Always in our hearts. Rest in peace Jose Antonio Reyes. Love you very much. Cesc."

Rest in peace, Jose.
