MANCHESTER UNITED fans have hailed their summer signing Sergio Reguilon for “giving” the team “what they have been missing for years.”

The Spanish defender has made two starts so far since moving to Old Trafford on loan from Tottenham earlier this month – both ending in losses.
But the 26-year-old can still hold his head up high as fans praised him for showing “passion and the will.”
A tweet from a Manchester United fan account said: “A lot been said about Onana but we all agree that Sergio Reguilon has given us what we have been missing for years. Passion and the will. My left back.”
While another fan posted: “I have to say I was a massive advocate for the signing of Reguilon.
“I’ve scouted and suggested him as an option to #MUFC for a while. But, even so, he’s massively impressed me. He’s looked bright going forwards.
“And, actually looks like he’s trying off the ball. Which is more that can be said for others.
“There is still more that he needs to show. But in a lackluster, leaky defense he is standing above the rest right now.”
In United’s Champions League opener he put in a hard-working shift and got forward as often as he could.
Also Reguilon was the first player to pick up and re-focus teammate Andre Onana who made two bluffs in the first half giving Bayern a two goal lead.
Fans responded positively to the tweets with some asking Man Utd to sign Reguilon permanently.
One fan said: “We need to sign this guy permanently.”
Another added: “He was the best player for United.”
A third put: “Reguilon gives everything on the pitch. If other players match his desire and work rate, it’ll make a massive difference.”
The Spaniard will now assist the Red Devils to redeem themselves in this weekend’s Premier League clash against Burnley at Turf Moor.
