Medical expert: Sergio Reguilon may need surgery after 'huge' Tottenham news
Tottenham defender Sergio Reguilon may need surgery at the end of the season to correct a niggling groin issue.
That is the view of injury expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site and has a background in medicine and data analysis.
Reguilon, 25, was benched for Spurs’ 0-0 draw with Brentford on 23 April and missed out entirely against Leicester City yesterday (1 May).
As quoted by club media ahead of the game, Antonio Conte said the left-back has “groin pain” and that it is “important to find a solution”.
Dinnery claimed that the Spaniard may be patched up until the end of the campaign and then go under the knife.
“Players at this stage of the season are going to have little knocks and niggles,” he told Football Insider‘s Adam Williams.

“The prevalence of groin pain is high because of the dynamic nature of the sport.
“It’s hugely important to try and find a solution. That might mean managing him conservatively until the summer.
“That way, any procedure that might need to be done can be get done over the summer.
“Given the fact they have already lost Matt Doherty, they might just need to make him available as a backup if needed.”
This site revealed last Thursday (28 April) that Tottenham will listen to offers for Reguilon this summer.
Oliver Skipp, Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga are all also sidelined for Spurs, who are two points outside the top four with four games to go.
