Speaking to the press before their clash with West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho dropped the latest injury update on summer signing Sergio Reguilon (football.london) – with the manager believing he will not be available to take part.
Reguilon, alongside Giovani Lo Celso and Serge Aurier, look set to be missing for the London derby as Mourinho drops a timeline on when he expects the Spaniard back in action.
Jose Mourinho drops Reguilon injury update
While Lo Celso and Aurier appear a long way off, with the former ‘not close‘ to returning for Spurs, Daniel Levy’s summer signing from Real Madrid could return to action against Wolfsberger next week – but not today according to Mourinho.
“I think Reguilon next week against Wolfsberger home match,” he explained in a press conference (via football.london).
“Not Gio. No, no, no. Gio is still a few weeks away and of course we need him because he gives us lots of qualities and options and we’ve missed him for a long time.”
Transfer Tavern take
Debatably one of Tottenham’s more impressive acquisitions last summer alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Reguilon has impressed both when he has played and behind the scenes since his arrival, according to reports.
Football Insider claimed at the start of the season that Spurs staff had been blown away by the ‘phenomenal’ 24-year-old – but it seems as if Tottenham will have to cope without his influence for West Ham after this ‘disappointing‘ update.
