Monchi, who overlapped with Reyes as a player at Sevilla and is now the club's director of football, also tweeted his sadness and referred to wingback Antonio Puerta, who died of a cardiac arrest playing for Sevilla in 2007.

Hearing the news, countrymen Rafa Benitez and Ayoze Perez have both responded to the loss via Twitter.

"I wish his family and friends continued strength and courage to get through this hard time", he added on Twitter. Our beloved former youth player Jose Antonio Reyes has died in a traffic accident.

"Our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends".

Utrera's mayor Jose Maria Villalobos said he felt 'overwhelmed by this sad news and the fact a young person with a family has had his life taken away from him'.

"It is with great sadness and shock that I learned of the awful and unexpected passing of Jose Antonio Reyes", said the FIFA President.

Cesc Fabregas described Jose Antonio Reyes as "one of the great talents in football" in an emotional tribute to his former Arsenal and Spain team-mate, who was killed in a traffic accident on Saturday.

"We couldn't be confirming worse news", the statement read.

Washington later slapped additional tariffs of up to 25% on $200 billion of Chinese goods, prompting Beijing to retaliate. On Sunday, Wei said the countries recognize that a conflict or war between them would have wide-reaching effects.

Reyes joined Arsenal for £10.5m in January 2004 in time to become a member of Arsenal's title-winning Invincibles, who went the whole 2003-4 Premier League season unbeaten.

BBC understands that the late Reyes later spent a season on loan at Real Madrid in 2006-07, winning the title.

Reyes married Noelia Lopez in 2017 and they had two daughters, Noelia and Trina.

Reyes tragically passed away in a vehicle accident on Saturday and Moreno wore a t-shirt in his memory during Liverpool's Champions League celebrations. In all the teams I've been at I've done very well. His former club Arsenal said Reyes "will always hold a special place in our hearts".

"I'll never forget our games of football tennis in the gym before and after training".

"Wonderful player, superb team mate and exceptional human being, " Henry wrote on Twitter.

You only need to look at the reaction to today's tragic news to see how highly regarded Reyes was in the attractive game by both former teammates, rivals and simply admirers.
