Antonio Conte says £28m Tottenham player is injured

Sergio Reguilon is out with an injury, according to Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte, speaking to Football.London.

After Tottenham’s victory over Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday, Tottenham manager Antonio Conte made the following statement.

“The players that came in today for example we lost on Friday Reguilon for an injury in his knee and we have found the solution to play with Matthew [Doherty] on the left and Emerson on the right. Great performance for both.

“It means there is great work behind on the tactical aspect and physical aspect as you can see this team has big intensity from start until the end.”

The 25-year-old Spain international left back was injured on Friday, according to the former Chelsea and Inter Milan manager.

A knee injury sustained in training last week by the £28 million player was reported by Football.London on Sunday.

It is a major blow for Tottenham to miss Reguilon, who has been playing on the left wing under manager Antonio Conte.

In the Premier League standings, Tottenham are currently in fourth place and will be confident of beating their bitter rivals Arsenal to the final Champions League spot this season.
