Sergio Reguilon’s arrival at Manchester United has generated a mixed response among fans following his debut against Brighton at Old Trafford. The 26-year-old Spanish full-back, on loan from Tottenham, showcased both his attacking prowess and defensive vulnerabilities.
While some United supporters were impressed with Reguilon’s attacking contributions and praised his style of play going forward, others expressed serious concerns about his defensive capabilities.
Reguilon received criticism for being “exposed” defensively, particularly during Danny Welbeck’s first-half goal. Fans questioned his positioning and ability to track back, with comments highlighting defensive lapses:
– “Where was Reguilon for that goal? Adingra was free on the right-hand side.”
– “Reguilon will give you a lot offensively, but will be defensively suspect as a full-back in a back four.”
– “For everything that Reguilon is, he’s not a defender, and that cross shouldn’t have come in.”
– “Reguilon, do you even want to look behind you?”
– “Not impressed by Reguilon, the goal came off his position and the winger there is having a ball.”
Praise for Attacking Play:
Despite defensive concerns, some fans acknowledged Reguilon’s positive contributions in the attacking phase of play:
– “He has been good. He has been a bit exposed defensively down that side, though.”
– “Quite impressive. Very good style of play going forward.”
– “Playing high up and done really well linking up.”
– “Very impressive debut. Always bombing down the flanks.”
– “He’s decent, TBH. Quick feet and doesn’t hesitate unnecessarily. But not sure about defensive ability.”
– “Very good aside from being caught out. He’s actually impressed me a bit, hope he keeps it up.”
Sergio Reguilon’s debut performance has sparked a debate among Manchester United fans, highlighting both his attacking potential and the need for defensive improvements. As he continues to adapt to the team, his role and impact will likely be closely monitored in the upcoming matches.
