I don’t agree with this. He was pretty much a starter every week, and almost always at right mid.Superb player who would have made a bigger impact if the strength of our midfield at the time didn't leave him marginalised as a squad player. I can understand that. While Reyna and Tugay were both superb players, would you really drop either Barry or Gio to play them?
He often played at right back, rather than midfield, where I thought he was excellent. At right back he provided athleticism and a technical ability that suited our possession game at the time. I was sorry to see him go but he was too good to be a bit-part player.
Great player. He went about his business without much plaudits a bit like Saša Papac.
That goal against Parma will live with me forever.
I also remember getting 'Reyna 40' on the back of my new kit prior to the squad numbers being released then his number was changed to 12 which was a red neck as a teenager amongst my peers. Felt like a diddy.
Your forgetting someone, was nicknamed the Serbian ZidaneGreat player at the time. I actually don’t think we’ve had any midfielders since that were better than either Barry, Gio, Tugay, Reyna and Albertz were at the same time! I include De Boer, Arteta and Davis in that.
In my opinion his best position was playing behind Kanchelski’s at right back, his vision and ability to make the overlap was awesome.Fantastic footballer. I remember he played right back a few times and once against the tarriers where Riseth got sent off for a shocking challenge on him. He only got a yellow for it but he was already booked so off he went. A very underrated player by those that hadn't seen him play, and a few that had. Reminds me a bit like Nigel Spackman in that aspect.
