Lazio goalkeeper Pepe Reina broke a personal record in the 1-0 win over Hellas Verona last week.
According to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 38-year-old Spanish shot-stopper took 70 touches of the ball in the win over the Gialloblu, the most in a single game in his career.
His previous record was 67, achieved three years ago when he was playing for Napoli against Fiorentina.
The former Liverpool man has an average of 45 touches per game and a pass accuracy of 79.91%, showing his importance to coach Simone Inzaghi’s tactical system and preference for playing out from the back.
The 38-year-old Reina has made 31 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2790 minutes. In that time, he has conceded 41 goals and helped the side keep eight clean sheets.
