Pepe Reina joined Lazio over the recent summer transfer window and has since gone on to become the team’s clear-cut starting goalkeeper.
Even at the age of 38, Reina continues to put out top performances for the Biancocelesti. For instance, the Spanish goalkeeper has totalled eight league clean sheets so far this season.
As Reina detailed during his talk with Futbol Emotion on Instagram, several key factors have been behind his ability to remain at the top of his game despite his age.
The passion I have for what I do helps me stay at the highest level, along with proper rest and nutrition. Until the end, I want to be a protagonist.
When your head goes, the rest follows. When you’re in a good moment and you’re confident, it’s a lot easier to feel good physically as well. And that’s especially true for a responsible role like a goalkeeper.
Reina has gradually become of the top fan favourites within the team.
