Man Utd loanee Sergio Reguilon opens up on move to Old Trafford

Spanish left-back Sergio Reguilon joined Manchester United on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur on transfer deadline day. 

The move came following injuries that sidelined Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia, leaving a void in the left-back position.

Reguilon has opened up about his transition to Old Trafford. He attributed his smooth integration to the warm welcome from familiar faces, especially his former Real Madrid teammate, Casemiro.

The Spaniard shared his thoughts on the bond with Casemiro, stating (via Man United’s official website): “I really have so many good memories with him. A lot of games, training sessions, and trips with him. 

“He sent me a message on the first day when I arrived here, saying he could help me if I needed anything at all to do with the club – or the house – he said that he was here for anything I needed. I’m really grateful to him.”

Reguilon continued to express his gratitude for the support he’s found at United, emphasising the importance of having familiar faces in a new environment and praising Casemiro’s leadership qualities.

“He is a role model, Reguilon said. “I mean, it’s hard to even know where to begin when you’re talking about his trophies, my goodness!” 

As Reguilon settles into his new surroundings, he is eager to make an impact on the pitch. 

Despite a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion in his debut, the left-back is gearing up for a crucial Champions League clash against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night in Group A.

With an injury sidelining Aaron Wan-Bissaka for several weeks, Reguilon will play a pivotal role in the upcoming matches. 

Reguilon impressed in his first outing and was one of the positives from their poor showing. 

He will hope to carry that form into their Bayern game, where he will face some of the best attackers in the world.
