José Antonio Reyes was already the only player to have earned four UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League winners' medals and has now extended his record to five following Sevilla's defeat of Liverpool in Basel, when he lifted the trophy despite not being part of the matchday squad.

Reyes, who played in Atlético Madrid's 2010 win and was also in the 2012 squad, moved one ahead of Ray Clemence, Guiseppe Bergomi and Nicola Berti (all from the UEFA Cup era) when Sevilla matched their 2014 victory by beating Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk 12 months ago in Warsaw.

A UEFA Champions League finalist with Arsenal and a UEFA Super Cup winner at Atleti, Reyes has now joined a select group of players to have won a single UEFA club competition five times or more: Real Madrid's Paco Gento (six times), Héctor Rial, Juan Alonso, Juan Santisteban, Marquitos, Rafael Lesmes, José María Zárraga and Alfredo Di Stéfano plus AC Milan duo Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Costacurta, all in the European Cup.

  • Player is counted as winning a competition if he featured during the season even if not in the final
