Jose Antonio Reyes admits he was surprised at how quickly he won over the Atletico Madrid supporters.

Reyes joined Atletico this summer having last season played a key role in helping their arch-rivals Real Madrid win the Primera Liga title, the Spain international scoring twice in their crucial final-day victory over Real Mallorca.

The 24-year-old had expected his recent past to work against him after joining Atletico, but the Rojiblancos fans have taken the former Sevilla and Arsenal winger to their hearts, and he said: "I did not imagine that in so short a time the people would treat me so well. When the stadium chanted my name and applauded me it was something special."
