Arminia Bielefeld contract

Whilst signing for Arminia Bielefeld, Reina had an unusual stipulation inserted into his contract stating the club must build a new house for him every year he spent with them. Because the type or size of the houses were not specified, he ended up receiving model houses made of Lego for each season he was there.[5]
