Italian football insider Fabrizio Romano has been speaking on the latest episode of his Here We Go podcast to discuss all things Tottenham Hotspur.
One of the main talking points of the podcast was the arrival of Antonio Conte in north London after replacing Nuno Espirito Santo at Spurs.
Did you expect more from Reguilon?
One player who has started in both of the games is Sergio Reguilon, with the Spaniard featuring in the left wing-back position, but was substituted after 71 minutes in the game against the Toffees (via Transfermarkt).
“Take an example, in my opinion, just my personal opinion – Sergio Reguilon as left-back will be one of the best in the world with Conte.
“He’s already among the top [talents] but, for me, with Conte, he will become, if not the best, one of the best together with Theo [Hernandez] Alphonso Davies and a few others because he’s incredible and he’s perfect for Conte.”
TIF Thoughts on Reguilon…
We have been relatively underwhelmed by Reguilon since he arrived at Spurs last year alongside his ex-teammate from Madrid, Gareth Bale.
Since arriving, Spurs have not exactly been defensively sound having shown their frailties last season and have failed to show any real sign of improvement so far this term, with 16 goals already conceded in the league.
And as an attack-minded defender, his attacking numbers have been far from ground-breaking, with six assists in 37 Premier League appearances and no goals across any of his 49 games in all competitions.
Although it is no disaster that the Spaniard has failed to score or provide more assists, we just expected a little bit more for a player who was tipped to be just as important of a purchase as the Bale loan was.
