“I’m very happy” – Sergio Reguilon

I’m very happy with everything that is happening, Sergio Reguilon said as stated by MARCA.

After breaking into the Real Madrid team during the club’s ill-fated 2018/19 campaign, Sergio Reguilon has now found stability during a loan spell with Sevilla and has earned an international call-up, events which have led the defender to declare he is very happy with what is happening to him.

Few wondered whether or not the left-back could recover from being sensationally dropped from the team immediately upon Zinedine Zidane‘s return, and whether he would be unfairly tarred with the memory of Santiago Solari‘s brief spell in charge.

However, he has battled back and quickly established himself as Sevilla‘s first-choice left-back, outperforming expectations with the Andalusian club.

“I’m very happy with everything that is happening,” Reguilon admitted in Spain‘s pre-match press conference.

“I’m in a great moment, it’s been a very unusual year.

“I have gone from never having played a professional match a year ago to the national team.”

When quizzed on his relationship with Zidane, especially with Reguilon only on loan at the moment, the Spanish defender was non-committal.

“I don’t think about Zidane, I merely think about myself,” he added.

“You never know if I would have had a place [in his team].

“I wanted to gain minutes and experience, I’m satisfied with how I’m doing.”

Ahead of the clash with NorwaySergio Ramos is preparing to become Spain‘s all-time leading appearance maker with 168 caps, yet Reguilon believes that he is part of a cycle of change within La Roja.

“It’s a new cycle, new generations arrive and we try to give new memories,” he confirmed.

“We want to qualify and for this we are working and studying both Norway and Sweden.

“Playing for Spain always brings extra pressure.”
