Tottenham defender Sergio Reguilon has already recovered from a knock he picked up during the current international break, according to Spain manager Luis Enrique.
Reguilon was substituted at half-time of Spain’s goalless friendly draw with Portugal on Wednesday, leading to fears he had suffered an injury.
And despite confirmation the left-back did indeed pick up a knock, Enrique has reassured Spain and Spurs fans that Reguilon is already over the problem.
“Reguilon had a knock and we had to change him at the break but he is training at 100 per cent and he is available,” Enrique said (via Football London).
In one way, Tottenham supporters might be frustrated that Reguilon has been passed fit for Spain’s matches against Switzerland and Ukraine before the end of the break.
The former Real Madrid man could easily take another knock, which would rule him out of next weekend’s London derby against in-form West Ham United.
That said, the overwhelming emotion is currently relief. Spurs could do without any injuries at the moment with the Europa League group stages just around the corner.
Jose Mourinho, in particular, will be glad if he has the choice of two left-backs – Reguilon and Davies – throughout the campaign.
