Manuel 'Manolo' Reina Rodríguez (born 1 April 1985 in Villanueva del Trabuco, Málaga) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Gimnàstic de Tarragona in Segunda División B, as a goalkeeper.

Football career

Reina was a product of hometown Málaga CF's youth system, and appeared in one first-team game during the 2005–06 season, against Valencia CF (0–0 home draw), as the Andalusia side ranked last in La Liga.

In 2007 he joined Levante UD, but played mainly for the reserves during his early spell. However, the team's severe financial crisis led to Reina becoming first-choice after the departure of Marco Storari; in eight matches, he conceded 18 goals.

Reina appeared in 47 games in the following two seasons combined, the last of them ending in top flight promotion. For 2010–11 he was initially deemed second-choice, to newly signed Gustavo Munúa. However, after the Uruguayan conceded 10 goals in the first three matches, he was selected for the next two rounds, keeping clean sheets against UD Almería (0–1 away win[1]) and Real Madrid (0–0, at home[2]); he eventually lost his starting position again, finishing the campaign with 18 appearances as the Valencian eventually retained its top division status.
