If recent Tottenham reports are true, Sergio Reguilon should be so excited – Our View
According to numerous reports, Paulo Fonseca is set to become Tottenham’s new manager, and one player who should be absolutely buzzing about that is Sergio Reguilon.
Indeed, the Spaniard could be a perfect fit for Fonseca’s system, and if he is utilised in the way you’d expect Fonseca to use him, he could soon be one of Tottenham’s most important players.
Fonseca’s style of play allows for a lot of attacking from the full-backs, and given the fact that Reguilon has the pace and crossing ability you’d usually expect to find from a winger, this appointment could help him reach the next level at Spurs.
Indeed, throughout Fonseca’s career, his left-backs have been some of his greatest attacking outlets.
Ismaily, Fonseca’s first-choice left-back when he was at Shakhtar Donetsk, contributed to 37 goals in 120 games under Fonseca, which is a ludicrous record for a full-back, while Leonardo Spinazzola, his preferred left-back at Roma, contributed to nine goals in 33 starts in the Serie A and the Europa League last term.
In comparison, Reguilon grabbed just three assists in 35 appearances for Spurs last term as he played in a much more restrictive role under Jose Mourinho.
However, there is reason to believe that Reguilon could up those numbers of he’s released from his shackles.
The Spaniard grabbed eight goal contributions in 2019/20 for Sevilla, using his pace and crossing ability to great effect, and given the fact Ismaily and Spinazzola have such impressive records under Fonseca at full-back, there’s reason to believe he could hit another gear next season.
If the reports of Fonseca coming in are accurate, Reguilon should be so excited about playing under the prospect of a manager who may finally let him strut his stuff in a Tottenham shirt.
It’s hard to gauge what Spurs will look like under Fonseca, but there’s reason to believe Reguilon could have a breakout season.
