Sergio Reguilon has insisted that he did eat the Portuguese suckling pig gifted to him by Jose Mourinho alone on Christmas day, contrary to reports that claim the opposite.
The Spaniard seems to have won over Jose Mourinho pretty quickly, with the Tottenham boss recently admitting that he is very happy with the way in which the left-back has settled into life in the Premier League.
However, all did not seem well between the 58-year-old and the former Real Madrid man after the left-back was controversially pictured at a Christmas party last year.
Mourinho had gifted Reguilon a roast pig for Xmas, explaining that he did so since he came to know that the defender would be celebrating Christmas day on his own.
Mourinho later expressed his disappointment when the defender was pictured celebrating Christmas with Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela (along with some of their friends and family), in violation of the UK government’s COVID restrictions.
However, Reguilon has now insisted that he did eat the pork alone at home on Christmas day and that his relationship with Mourinho remains strong.
The Tottenham man told The Daily Mirror: “I know Jose wants the best for me and I feel the same about him.
“It was a big bit of pork (that Mourinho gifted).
“I ate it all alone at home on December 25, I promise.”
