Sergio Reguilon has revealed it was ‘so difficult’ to play against Wolverhampton Wanderers when Nuno Espirito Santo and Matt Doherty were at the club. 

The Spaniard faced the West Midlands side during the Europa League quarter-finals when he was at Sevilla in 2019/20.

The La Liga side edged through to the semi-finals of the competition with a late strike from Lucas Ocampos and the game proved to be pivotal in Sevilla’s run to the trophy, which stands as their fourth Europa League title in eight seasons. 

Reguilon would eventually link up with Spurs later that summer and was joined by right-back Doherty, who both came up against each other on the flank during the Sevilla vs Wolves match.

After coming out on the winning side, the 24-year-old claimed he still does not let the Republic of Ireland international live the game down 

Reguilon told The Guardian: “I’ve joked with him about the match.”

The marauding left-back has also commented on what it was like to play against a Wolves side coached by Nuno, who found himself appointed as Spurs boss back in June this year. 

He added: “They were very strong defensively and it was so difficult because you haven’t got space to play.

“When you have the ball, they are too compact, too aggressive. And with the ball, the transition … they are so dangerous on the counterattack.”

On what Nuno wants from him at Spurs, Reguilon said: “He wants me to be a solid left-back … show my quality, run, cross, everything.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Nuno made Wolves such a tough side to play against in the Premier League, which translated all the way to the knockout rounds in the Europa League. Reguilon’s comments echo that, and now finding himself in a side coached by Nuno, the aim is to get Spurs playing equally as tough as Wolves did.
