Tottenham Hotspur loanee Sergio Reguilon admitted to hospital and misses Atletico Madrid’s latest clash
Tottenham Hotspur Sergio Reguilon made his long-awaited debut for Atletico Madrid in his team’s 1-0 La Liga loss against RCD Mallorca earlier this week.
The 25-year-old left-back was allowed to leave Spurs temporarily as manager Antonio Conte brought in Ivan Perisic on a free transfer from Inter Milan to man the left flank. Atletico aren’t a bad club to be playing for on loan.
Having seen Renan Lodi join Nottingham Forest before the start of the season on a loan spell to Nottingham Forest, Reguilon was expected to battle Reinildo Mandava for first-team minutes.
That didn’t happen due to Reguilon’s injury issues that he carried with him from N17 to the Wanda Metropolitano. Now that he has recovered and fit, Reguilon suffered another unfortunate setback before Los Colchoneros‘ Copa del Rey clash against Almazan.
The official Atletico Madrid Twitter account posted a message which confirmed that the former Real Madrid left-back was admitted to the hospital due to an ‘acute digestive condition’.
Hopefully, the situation resolves soon and Reguilon is back to full fitness again. The addition of the word ‘acute’ would send waves of anxiety amongst the player’s fans.
Atletico won 2-0 in their Copa del Rey clash without Reguilon with goals from Joaquin Correa and Joao Felix. They are not scheduled to play another match until the end of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
That’s a long time for Reguilon to recover, especially after not being picked for manager Xavi Hernandez’s Spain squad that travels to Qatar later this month. Reguilon, at 25, is a good, balanced full-back.
