Sergio Reguilon has admitted that he fully believes that Tottenham are going to end their twelve-year wait for silverware particularly given the confidence that Jose Mourinho exudes.
The left-back has settled in very quickly since arriving at the club in the summer and has established himself as a regular in the side.
He was highly sought-after following his successful loan spell at Sevilla last season but he admitted that he had always wanted to experience Premier League football during his career and to be coached by Mourinho.
When asked why he decided to join Spurs despite the club not being in the Champions League this season, the Spaniard told AS: “There are many circumstances. I could not say one in particular because it is an accumulation of things.
“The perspective of playing for me was very important, because at my age I have to grow and add minutes.
“I have always said that I wanted to play some time in my life in the Premier and I had also said that I wanted Mourinho to coach me in my career. Many factors were brought together to make this possible.”
Reguilon also admitted that he spoke to Mourinho several times before making his decision to come to North London.
He said: “He (Mourinho) called me several times before making the decision. It was a reason to take into account his insistence because if he loved me so much it would be for something.”
Tottenham were sitting at the top of the Premier League table a couple of weeks ago and looked as if they were going to put in a sustained bid for the title.
However, the last few results have not gone their way and the team has now fallen out of the top four as a result.
Despite their recent form, Reguilon admitted that he fully believes that the season is going to be a successful one for the Lilywhites.
The left-back said: “I saw, I don’t know where, that in his second year Mourinho has won a title in all the teams he has been in.
“I personally look at him, I see that self-assurance he has and I say ‘we are going to win something yes or yes’. We are going to have to win something.
“With that mentality, things are done. You cannot think that by history we have won or not.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Based on what all the Spurs stars are saying publicly, it is clear that there is a belief in the squad that this is going to be the year that we break our trophy drought. While I will always love Pochettino for what he did for us, there is no question that I will be much more confident going into a semifinal or final now that Jose is in charge.
