‘I didn’t want anything to do with anyone’ – Reguilon opens up on anger after West Ham game


Sergio Reguilon has admitted that he was devastated that the team threw away two points against West Ham United last Sunday in what was his first league start at home for Tottenham.

The left-back has settled in quickly and made a positive impact in his four appearances for the Lilywhites so far.

The Spain international could be seen joking around with his new Tottenham teammates during training on Wednesday, suggesting that he is already getting comfortable in his new surroundings.

When asked how he is settling in, Reguilon told Sky Sports: “Since the first day, all my team-mates have welcomed me very nicely.

“They are always coming to me asking if there’s anything I need, or if there’s anything they can do, and they have helped me on the pitch too.

“Bit by bit, I am getting to know them more as people, not just as players I know from the PlayStation or the television. Now, they are all in contact with me and I know them better. That really helps.”

When asked if his English has improved in the little over one month he has spent in London, he said: “[I can understand] as long as people speak to me slowly”

The defender registered his first assist in a Spurs shirt against West Ham as he provided a lovely cross for Harry Kane to head home the third goal. However, he admitted that the 3-3 draw felt like a defeat after the game.

When asked about the result in his first London derby, he said: “It felt like a defeat. It was a big failure on our part, a big error.

“I was very angry afterwards. I didn’t want anything to do with anyone. But in the end, it’s football, and in football, anything can happen. Hopefully, we can put it behind us quickly.”
