Ángel Eduardo Reyna Martínez (born 19 September 1984 in Mexico D.F.)[1] is a Mexican footballer, who plays as an attacking midfielder for Celaya.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Reyna came out of Club América's reserves but was given his professional debut at San Luis F.C. on 31 July 2005. He scored his first goal in the Primera Division against Pumas UNAM on 5 February 2006. After his stint at San Luis, Reyna was signed by Club Necaxa.

Club América[edit]

On 18 December 2008 he signed with Mexico City giants América, where he was "born" as a footballer, to be the new reinforcement for the Clausura 2009 season. His debut was against rivals Chivas Guadalajara in the InterLiga tournament where the match ended in a 1–1 draw.

For the Bicentenario 2010 season, after the shooting of Salvador Cabañas, Reyna became a reference player for the team and one of their top scorers, going on to score 7 goals in 16 appearances, including the 9000th goal in the history of the Estadio Azteca in a 2–2 draw with Pachuca.

On 3 April 2011 Reyna scored his first hat-trick for América in a 5–4 win against Puebla in the Clausura 2011 tournament. On 1 May 2011 after scoring the second goal in the 91' minute in the 2–0 win over home-side Pumas, Reyna scored his 13th league goal, thus becoming goalscoring champion of the Clausura 2011.[2] He made team history by scoring 13 goals making him the second Mexican-born goalscoring champion, the last one being Cuauhtemoc Blanco in 1998, who scored 16 goals.

On 24 October 2011, Reyna was separated from the first team after saying that the team's captain, Aquivaldo Mosquera, was made of "water" and that América had a defense of "plastic". América was in the 16th position of the league and had one of the worst defenses in the tournament. After that declarations Reyna was separated of the team.[3]

Monterrey[edit]

On 21 December 2011, Reyna joined C.F. Monterrey. Reyna scored 4 goals and 3 assist in his first tournament with Monterrey. His team won the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champions League and was the runner-up for the Mexican Clausura 2012. He showed off on the CONCACAF following tournament by scoring a hat-trick in the 5–0 victory over Chorrillo F.C. in the opening match.

Loan to Pachuca[edit]

In 2013 Reyna was sent on loan to Pachuca where he scored five goals in 16 matches played.

Veracruz[edit]

On 17 June 2013 Veracruz reached an agreement with Monterrey to purchase Reyna. He had an outstanding start with the club by scoring 7 goals in only the first 3 league matches.

Guadalajara[edit]

On 29 May 2014 Reyna made a controversial move to Guadalajara for a fee of US$3.56 million.[4] In August 2015 Reyna was sent to train with the reserve squad after the club's president said he was not showing commitment with the team. On 10 March 2016, the club announced that they had reached an agreement to terminate his contract by mutual consent. He was then signed by Atletico Celaya.
