Pepe Reina Sets Club Record in 100th Shutout With Liverpool

by

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina is not the first Reds' goalie to record 100 shutouts with the team, but he did it in the fastest amount of time.

Reina earned the century mark after blanking Aston Villa in Liverpool's 3-0 victory on Monday. It was his 198th game with the Reds, surpassing the record set by Ray Clemence, who reached the feat in 217 outings.

Also on the list of Liverpool goalkeepers to notch 100 clean sheets is Bruce Grobbelaar, who picked up his 100th in his 225th match, and Elisha Scott who reached the mark in 283 games.

When it comes to Reina's incredible accomplishment, the Spaniard gives all the credit to his teammates.

"Thanks to the boys because it's up to them," Reina told Sky Sports. "We have a big squad, there are not only three in the team. We have 24 men and we're all here to deliver."
