Anyone who might have caught the international match between Portugal and Spain yesterday might have also noticed that new Tottenham Hotspur signing Sergio Reguilon was substituted at halftime of the match, and appeared to be limping a bit just beforehand. It caused Spurs Twitter to go into something resembling a tizzy, especially considering that this was a meaningless friendly that ended 0-0 that probably shoudn’t have happened in the first place thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Well, today Spain manager Luis Enrique didn’t exactly put all of Tottenham fans’ fears about Reguilon’s health and safety to bed in comments to the press, saying that indeed Reguilon took a knock and his halftime substitution was precautionary. Enrique said he hopes there’s nothing much to worry about ahead of Spain’s upcoming Nations League matches against Switzerland and Ukraine, but his words didn’t do much to assuage my delicate sensibilities.
“Reguilon, we’ll have to wait. It’s not anything serious. It’s a knock which the doctors will have to look at. I hope it doesn’t get too complicated.”
God, I hate the international break.
