Last night, Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-2 to Newcastle United, which made them struggle to play in the Europe competition next season. The spotlight of the match belongs to Sergio Reguilon, with an own goal deserved a Puskas award. Reguilon attempted to hook the ball away with his weaker right foot, but he got an awful contact on the ball and saw the ball rockets towards the goal. Hugo Lloris had no chance in goal as the ball sliced straight into the top corner to make it 1-1. Spurs’ legend Gary Lineker commented on that incident: 


Early life

Sergio Reguilon, full name Sergio Reguilon Rodriguez, nickname “Regui”, was born on the 16th day of December 1996 in Madrid, Spain. He is the second son in the family, after his brother Deigo Reguilon.

Reguilon enjoyed his childhood in Madrid, got a childhood nickname “Ardilla” which translates as “Squirrel”. He got this nickname because he usually climbs streetlights, trees, and anything was climbable. 

His family roots are from Zamora, which city is 130 km away from Madrid. His family was a middle-class family in Madrid; his parents are probably the type who could afford their son the basic things he needed in his early years.

Many athletes from many sports came from Zamora like Borja Garcia (racing), Jose Gonzalez (sport shooter), Cristian Salvador (football),…


Early career

Sergio Reguilon was a staunch supporter of Real Madrid and began playing for local football club CF Collado Villalba as a 5-year-old. Sergio Reguilon was small but preciously strong; moreover, he had strength and technique that were alien to his age group. 

At the 2005/2006 season, Reguilon joined Real Madrid academy and was most potential among the talents. At the age of 18, the fast-riding defender went to UD Logrones to gain more playtime. Sadly, he often sat on benches. 

He went back to Real and began playing for the Los Blancos reserves. In the following season, Reguilon once again went to UD Logrones and quickly became one of their regular XI. He scored 8 goals with several assists. 


Real Madrid’s career

Returning to Real Madrid, Reguilon was given playing opportunities by Santiano Solari, racking up 30 appearances and serving as the B team captain 11 times. It wasn’t long before he was sent on loan to Sevilla. 


Sevilla’s career

In the 2019/2020 season, Sergio Reguilon joined Sevilla on loan from Real Madrid for a season. He had a great season with Les Nervionenses as they lifted their sixth UEFA Europa League trophy by beating Inter Milan 3-2 in the final. Moreover, he was voted as La Liga’s best left-back. However, Real Madrid didn’t want him to return to Santiago Bernabeu; therefore, Sergio Reguilon was sought after by major teams.


Tottenham Hotspur’s career

Finally, Reguilon chose Tottenham Hotspur as the next landing in his career. He signed a five-year deal with Spurs with a buy-back clause from Real Madrid. He had a tremendous first half of the season with the Spurs as they sat on top of the table. However, they are now sitting in the seventh position and have to fight for a slot in the European competition next season.


International career

Reguilon hasn’t made an impression in his international career. Reguilon was selected for the Spain U21 team for the first and only time in 2019. He was also called up for the Spain national team in the same year, but he hasn’t made his debut until September 2020.
