I’d last a week under Guardiola, he would fry my brain! It’s All Kicking OffBy Simon Jones for MailOnline Published: 01:04 GMT, 18 January 2024 | Updated: 01:19 GMT, 18 January 2024 Brentford have completed the signing of Sergio Reguilon on loan from Tottenham until the end of the season. The defender spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Manchester United as Erik ten Hag’s side suffered with injuries in the left back position. Reguilon’s appearance at the Community Stadium comes under similar circumstances, with the Bees missing first-choice left-back Rico Henry due to an ACL injury. The 27-year-old’s 12-game Old Trafford cameo unimpressed to the extent that the club opted to activate a break clause in his deal, nevertheless, Thomas Frank believes that he is a ‘perfect’ fit for his struggling side. ‘This is a very good signing for us. We’ve been talking for a while about how we need a good left-back, and we managed to get a very good left-back.’ He told the club’s website. ‘I’m very pleased with the job that Phil Giles and Lee Dykes have done. Thomas Frank believes that the Spanish defender will be a perfect fit for his side that sit just three points above the drop zone Tottenham defender Sergio Reguilon has completed a move to Brentford for the rest of the season ‘Sergio is a perfect fit for us: a proven Premier League player in every aspect. He fits what we want. He’s very offensive, has a very good cross and a very good left foot.’He’s got the experience we need to complement the rest of the squad and he’s a good character.’We need him, but I also think he needs us to show how good a footballer he is. I’m convinced that this will be a positive partnership.’Reguilon made a solid start to his career in north London after arriving from Real Madrid in 2020. But the fullback hasn’t played for his parent club since the 2021-22 campaign and spent last season on loan with Atletico Madrid. He has won six caps for Spain, but last featured in 2021. He has been deemed surplus to requirements by Ange Postecoglou.Frank on the other hand, will be hopeful he can help energise his faltering squad that sit just three points above the relegation zone in 16th place.  The defender spent the first half of the season on loan at Man United before his deal endedIT’S ALL KICKING OFF!  It’s All Kicking Off is an exciting new podcast from Mail Sport that promises a different take on Premier League football, with a show every Monday and Thursday this season.It is available on MailOnline, Mail+, YouTube , Apple Music and Spotify Brentford have won only one of their last 10 games in all competitions but there will be optimism in west London that their current position will improve with the return of talisman Ivan Toney, who is now free to play following eight-month ban for breaking FA gambling rules. The forward could make his first appearance of the season alongside Reguilon in the Bees’ next Premier League fixture, against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
