VIDEO: Pepe Reina’s already planning for retirement!

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has appeared in a short film where he plays a Roman soldier. Check out his acting skills.

Acting has become a very popular career choice for former professional football players. Both Vinnie Jones and Eric Cantona had a reputation for being hard men on the pitch and they turned to the big screen when they couldn’t cut it any more.

It seems that Pepe Reina is heading in the right direction, as he appeared in a short film directed by Javier Fesser, much to the amusement of his international and club teammates.

He could definitely follow Jones down the route of being a typical hard man character due to his imposing size and the fact he doesn’t have any hair. It’ll probably be worth watching this short film out of curiosity over anything else.

If you’re having a rough week then check out the brief trailer video we’ve attached below. Only the hardest of souls won't find this funny.

What do you make of Reina’s acting skills?
