New Tottenham signing Sergio Reguilon was all smiles in his first interview as a Tottenham Hotspur player,with the left-back admitting that he cannot wait to get started on his new adventure in North London.

The 23-year-old’s arrival has understandably been overshadowed by the high profile return of Gareth Bale to his former club.

However, Reguilon could also potentially be a fantastic coup for the Lilwhites, with the defender being voted the best left-back in La Liga following his performances on loan at Seville last season and subsequently winning his first cap for the Spanish national side.

Reguilon admitted that he is looking to develop as a player as he gets set to begin his journey at Spurs.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the new signing said: “I’m very happy to be here. I want to work with my team-mates, meet the city and work – work for football.

“I really like the philosophy of the club and the coach, those were things that made me want to come here; the desire to grow, the vision of the club, and I’m eager to grow as a player.

“Tottenham have world-class players and a world-class manager. I can wait to start working with him on my first day.”

The left-back also revealed that he spoke to Bale in detail about the club and admitted he cannot wait to turn out at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a Spurs shirt.

Reguilon added: “I talked with Bale regarding everything: the club, the city, the stadium and I just can’t wait to get started with my team-mates.

“I’ve only seen [the stadium] in pictures – it’s insane. I can’t wait to go and play there. but especially when the fans are back to watch our games and create the atmosphere we need to achieve great things this year.

“I saw the training facilities, they are incredible. Honestly, I didn’t expect it to be so big, beautiful and pristine and I can’t wait to start training there with my team-mates.

“I think I am now in the hardest league in the world, the most difficult one – I can’t wait to start this new adventure.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While it is understandable why Reguilon’s arrival has been overshadowed by Bale’s return, I believe the Spaniard could potentially prove just as big a boost to the squad. With the ability he has to progress the ball down the left flank, his signing opens up a whole host of tactical possibilities for Jose Mourinho.
