Vision, Calmness, and Growth


Diego Reyes, a football Globetrotter: From the Dominican Republic, through Marcet, to one of Mexico’s top Clubs.

Diego Reyes, a talented Dominican midfielder, stood out at Marcet thanks to his dedication and game vision. His journey, from his time at the Academy to joining the youth teams of Chivas de Guadalajara, one of the best clubs in Mexico’s first division, showcases his significant progression in football.

Diego plays as a pivot or an interior midfielder and describes himself as follows: “I consider myself a player with a lot of game vision who knows when to bring calm to the game and when to push forward. I have good movement and can sometimes be creative when attacking. A role model for me is the Croatian player Modric.”

Diego, known for his vision and game management, looks up to Luka Modric as his role model.

His arrival at Marcet Football University was crucial for his growth. “My time there was one of the best things that could have happened to me in my football career as I understood the game much better, both collectively and individually. I came to Marcet because my friends from the Dominican Republic recommended it to me. I spent one season at Marcet,” recalls Diego.

Marcet Football University helped him in football and his personal development: “Yes, completely. Both in football and as a person because at Marcet, they also teach you to be independent.”

One of Diego’s most memorable moments: “I have many memories, but the one that will stay with me forever is the match we played against Real Madrid because it is the biggest club in the world, and it was a dream to play against them.”

After his time at Marcet, Diego had the opportunity to join one of Mexico’s top clubs: “I went for a two-week trial, and they told me there that they wanted to see me again and invited me to the preseason with Chivas de Guadalajara’s U-18 team.”

Although he has not yet debuted with the Mexican team: “I haven’t joined the Mexican team yet because I’m still on trial with the U-18 category.”

Diego has enjoyed an unforgettable experience with his national team: “My time with the Dominican national team was very beautiful; it was a dream for me to represent my country internationally. I played in a tournament in Colombia called the Bolivarian Games, where I played against the national teams of Colombia, Bolivia, and Paraguay.”

With clear goals in mind, Diego looks to the future with determination: “My goal is to stay with a professional team and keep advancing until I can debut.”
