'I've Been Studying Him' - Pundit has spotted something 'Remarkable' from Spurs 2020 signing
Michael Brown has admitted he has been blown away by Sergio Reguilon’s “incredible” crossing ability at Tottenham this season.
The former Spurs and Leeds midfielder, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted that while the 24-year-old still could improve defensively, his deliveries from out wide are “remarkable”.
Reguilon has played 19 times for Spurs across all competitions so far and chipped in with his fifth assist in the 1-1 draw against Fulham.
The Spanish full-back has had to battle with Ben Davies for a place in the side but has started 11 of a possible 16 Premier League games so far.
Brown revealed he had been doing an in-depth study of the 2020 signing ahead of Tottenham’s clash against Sheffield United on Sunday and admitted he had been blown away by what he has seen so far.
Brown told Football Insider: “It’s funny actually, I’m doing Stadium Astro (Malaysian TV) on Sunday for the Spurs and I’ve just been flagged up to do Reguilon as a piece for the start of it.

“I’ve been studying him and we’re going to highlight his crossing, I mean his crossing is incredible with that left foot, them balls he’s putting in are remarkable.
“I was thinking what’s he going to be like defensively in a setup where you have to be a bit more rigid so we’ve seen Mourinho tinker and change slightly when games are slightly different.
“We didn’t seem him start at Liverpool, I don’t think, where he could have been under a little bit more pressure so defensively, still learning, but getting forward and attacking wise, his delivery is really, really good.”
As reported by Sky Sports, Reguilon cost Tottenham a fee which could rise to £32million last summer as he signed a five-year contract in north London.
The Madrid-born defender has also established himself as a regular for the Spanish national side and has started four times in five appearances since his debut in June 2020.
