Sergio Reguilon claims leaving Real Madrid for Tottenham “wasn’t up to me”, but admits working under Jose Mourinho has been a positive surprise.
Reguilon moved to Spurs in the recent transfer window and has so far proved an excellent fit in the side, claiming three assists in eight games.
The 23-year-old has a buy-back clause linked to Madrid in his contract and has admitted that the “possibility exists” that he could one day return to his “home”.
Now an established member of Mourinho’s side, Reguilon has revealed the decision to move to Spurs was out of his hands.
He told Onda Cero (via Libertad Digital): “I’m not in Madrid because it’s something that wasn’t up to me. My conscience is very clear. You can’t be frustrated about decisions you don’t get to make. I didn’t get to speak with [Zinedine] Zidane.”
But Reguilon has been impressed by his new boss, Mourinho.
“He is a great person and wins a lot in the short term,” Reguilon said via Sport Witness. “Jose Mourinho has surprised me in a good way. He has many good things about him.
That being said, he hasn’t forgotten his childhood club, Real Madrid, adding: “They’ve given me everything and I will always have a very special affection for them.”
