Tottenham Hotspur signed Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid for a reported £32m fee in the summer transfer window, around the same time they secured Gareth Bale on loan.

The Spanish left-back has seamlessly taken to Premier League football like a duck to water and looks to have established himself as Mourinho’s first-choice left-back.

Reguilon has played eight games for Spurs across all competitions this season, already racking up an impressive three assists in that time (TransferMarkt).

However, the defender has now revealed that the decision for him to leave Real Madrid in the summer was not up to him.

With both Marcelo and Ferland Mendy with Los Blancos fighting it out for the top left-back spot, Reguilon went out on loan to Sevilla last season and won the Europa League.

The Spaniard hinted in a recent interview with El Transistor on Onda Cero that the reason he is not in Madrid is not down to him.

He said (relayed by Libertad Digital and Sport Witness): “I’m not in Madrid because it’s something that wasn’t up to me. My conscience is very clear. You can’t be frustrated about decisions you don’t get to make. I didn’t get to speak with Zidane.”
