Mallorca coach Caparros likens Reyes to Barcelona star Messi

Real Mallorca coach Joaquin Caparros sees Sevilla winger Jose Antonio Reyes in the same class as Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Caparros is delighted with the current form of the ex-Arsenal winger.

"What I saw Reyes do I am yet to see anyone else do, except Messi," the Mallorca coach told Marca.

"That kind of vertical play, of picking up the ball in his own half and reaching the other goal...

"That is the Reyes everyone wants, a physical and technical genius, a football talent. Reyes is pure talent."
