Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell who works as a pundit for a La Liga broadcaster has warned Tottenham new boy Sergio Reguilon that his first winter in English football will be a ‘brutal’ test.
Reguilon has settled into his new surroundings really well since arriving in North London and has quickly established himself as a regular in Jose Mourinho’s side.
He has already showcased the abundance of pace and energy he possesses to get up and down the left-flank for all ninety minutes.
The fact that the Spurs boss handed the Spanish international a start in a tough, physical away battle at The Hawthorns last Sunday could be viewed as a major show of trust and the former Real Madrid man certainly passed the test with flying colours.
Campbell does no doubt the 23-year-old’s quality but he warned him that the winter months in England are not what he would be used to, due to the weather and frequency of games.
The pundit told Football Insider: “Reguilon, I’ve seen him play quite a few times in Spain, very good player. Offensive full-back.
“Both of them, Reguilon and Doherty, are quite offensive full-backs. Both seem to have settled okay.
“So we’ll see. We’re still early doors at the moment, winter’s not kicked in yet. They’re two very good players.
“I’d like to see Reguilon with a season under his belt, we’re going to see how he adapts in the winter months because that’s going to test him.
“In Spain, it’s warmer, the climate’s better but over here it can be brutal, so we’ll see.”
