New Spurs left back Sergio Reguilon says he has ‘really enjoyed his time at the club so far’ after moving from Real Madrid for £25 million in the summer.
Reguilon was heavily linked with a move to Man Utd throughout the summer but eventually went to North London.
He has made a good start to the season, playing four games for Jose Mourinho so far.
Speaking ahead of Spurs’ Europa League match against LASK this evening, he told Sky Sports: “There was a broad market but as soon as I heard of Tottenham’s interest, it was simple. It was a big deal to leave my country, my league and my family, but it has worked out well.
“Since I arrived here, the truth is the club has surprised me in a very good way. The training facilities, my team-mates, everything. The stadium is insane. I have really enjoyed it so far.
“I spoke with Bale when I was in Madrid. He told me what it was like at Tottenham. It was helpful for me to come here with someone who was already a team-mate. I could ask him things, like how certain things were going to work.
“The truth is he helped me a lot and so have the others. Since the first day, all my team-mates have welcomed me very nicely. They are always coming to me asking if there’s anything I need, or if there’s anything they can do, and they have helped me on the pitch too.”
Reguilon also spoke about Mourinho, who was Real manager while he was part of the club. He said: “I was very young, still in the academy, and I never had the good fortune of meeting him. But I have great memories of that period.
“In my house, we were all big fans of Mourinho.”
