Tottenham new boy Sergio Reguilon has been warned the “brutal” English climate will be a true test of his ability to be a Premier League star.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, ex-Arsenal ace Kevin Campbell revealed he has been impressed by the left-back, who he already knew well from working in Spanish football.
The defender joined Tottenham at the same time as headline summer arrival Gareth Bale, costing an initial £28m and rising to a potential £33m.
Football Insider revealed last month how Reguilon has blown Jose Mourinho, the coaching staff and players away behind the scenes with his star quality and “phenomenal” talent.
“Reguilon, I’ve seen him play quite a few times in Spain, very good player,” Campbell, who works for a broadcaster as a La Liga pundit, told Football Insider. “Offensive full-
back. Both of them, Reguilon and Docherty, are quite offensive full-backs. Both seem to have settled okay.
“So we’ll see. We’re still early doors at the moment, winter’s not kicked in yet. They’re two very good players.
“I’d like to see Reguilon with a season under his belt, we’re going to see how he adapts in the winter months because that’s going to test him.
“In Spain it’s warmer, the climate’s better but over here it can be brutal, so we’ll see.”
Capped three times by Spain, Reguilon only has 45 La Liga appearances under his belt and most of them came last season while on loan at Sevilla.
At Tottenham, he has made eight appearances since his arrival and started four of their last five Premier League matches.
