In 1985, he joined SV Werder Bremen, being the side's undisputed starter for 11 of his 13 seasons, while also being instrumental in the club's conquests, which included two leagues and the 1992 Cup Winners' Cup.
Reck moved to FC Schalke 04 in 1998, aged 33, still amassing a further 112 league matches. In his last season, he played second-fiddle to Frank Rost, and chose to retire. Although Oliver Kahn holds the record for most matches without conceding goals in the league, at 180 in a total of 515 matches, Reck is the most effective goalkeeper, not conceding a goal in 173 of 471 matches, with an "effectivity rate" of 0.367, versus Kahn's 0.349.
On 9 February 2002, in his penultimate year, Reck scored a penalty kick for Schalke, in a 4–0 home routing of FC St. Pauli. After retiring, he became the goalkeeping coach in his last club. After the sacking of Fred Rutten in March 2009, he became acting manager, alongside Youri Mulder and Mike Büskens until the end of the season.
Reck played once for Germany, appearing in a 4 June 1996 friendly win against Liechtenstein (9–1), being subsequently selected for the squad at that year's UEFA European Football Championship, which the nation eventually won.
