Cesc Fabregas Posts Heart-Rending Tribute To Late Jose Antonio Reyes

Cesc Fabregas has posted a heartfelt tribute to his friend and former teammate Jose Antonio Reyes after he tragically passed away in a car crash earlier today, aged 35.

His former club Sevilla confirmed the tragedy on their official Twitter account. A post read: "We couldn't be confirming worse news. Beloved Sevilla star José Antonio Reyes has died in a traffic collision. Rest in peace."

Reyes was subject to a whole host of tributes and condolences, with Fabregas posting a touching message on Instagram.

The 32-year old called Reyes his "first great friend" in professional football as well as a "humble guy". He talked about how his roommate was picky with the air conditioning, their tennis matches in the gym and how Reyes and his family welcome a 16-year old Fabregas with open arms.

It's an incredibly tough but also really lovely at the same time.

Reyes signed for Arsenal in January 2004 from Sevilla and was part of Arsenal's Invincibles side that went unbeaten on their way to winning the Premier League that season.

He also won the FA Cup with Arsenal, as well as scoring some crucial goals in helping Real Madrid win the 2006/07 La Liga when on loan.

The Spaniard also won the Europa League twice at Atletico Madrid and three times in a row with Sevilla. He was most recently playing with Extremadura, where he had signed a five-month contract in January.
