New Tottenham Hotspur signing Sergio Reguilon has taken to social media to react to Tottenham’s 5-2 thrashing of Southampton on Sunday.

Spurs announced the capture of the left-back along with the return of Gareth Bale on Saturday evening.

While the arrival of Bale has understandably stolen the limelight, Reguilon’s arrival could also be a boost for Jose Mourinho, with the Spurs boss admitting that he was impressed with the 23-year-old’s performances on loan at Sevilla last season (Football.London).

While Reguilon, unlike Bale, is not thought to be too far away from being match-fit, the deal was not completed quickly enough for the defender to play a part in Tottenham’s trip to St Mary’s.

The former Real Madrid man was seemingly impressed by what he saw from his new teammates as Harry Kane and Son Heung-min put the Saints to the sword in the second half.

Spurs Web Opinion

The general consensus among Spurs fans seems to be that Reguilon’s arrival opens up the possibility for Mourinho to switch to a more balanced back five, with advanced wing-backs on either side. However, I believe we are likely to continue with a lop-sided back four for now. Jose likes the idea of defending with a back four and building with three at the back, which means Doherty’s place is under threat after Reguilon’s arrival. I can see us playing a more defensively sound option at right-back and going with the Spanish international over Davies at left-back.
