Flores: Reyes has rediscovered best form

MADRID - Atletico Madrid's former Arsenal and Real Madrid winger Jose Antonio Reyes has regained the form that makes him one of the best players in Europe, coach Quique Sanchez Flores said on Monday.

The forward has struggled to win over some Atletico fans on his return from a loan spell at Benfica but several sparkling performances in recent weeks appear to be turning the tide of criticism.

"He knows the level of expectation we have for him and I believe he is in a patch of form where he cannot do anything but fight hard and demonstrate his quality," Sanchez Flores told a news conference ahead of Atletico's Champions League Group D match at home to Porto on Tuesday.

"We know his talent when he is on top form and that's where he is right now."
