Mexican side Chivas field 71-year-old striker Chava Reyes


25th, January 2008

Shouts of ‘my grandad could do better than you’ from the crowd might seem a little far-fetched in most instances, but not in Mexico. The accusations could be levelled quite fairly at Chivas’ 71-year-old striker Chava Reyes. The club’s all-time leading scorer was rolled out of retirement and drafted into the starting line-up of their match against Pumas.
Wearing the number 57 shirt to signify his title-winning goal 57 years ago, Reyes was involved in the kick-off and has a couple of touches before being replaced by Omar Bravo. His involvement seemed to do the trick as Chivas ran out 3-0 winners.
