SERGIO REGUILON has revealed that Jose Mourinho gave him a cooked suckling pig for Christmas.
The Tottenham manager decided to treat the 24-year-old as he knew he was spending the big day alone.
Spurs star Sergio Reguilon spent Christmas alone in London
It is the second time in as many months that Mourinho has given Reguilon a slab of meat.
In November, the generous manager forked out £500 on a leg of ham for the former Real Madrid star.
And the Special One, 57, refused to let the Spain international go without on Christmas day.
During an interview with AS, Reguilon claimed he had ‘a thousand wonderful anecdotes’ about Mourinho.
Naming one, he said: “For example on Christmas day, he knows that I am alone.
“We got to training on the 25th at 3pm and I had a box on my seat. I open it and it was a suckling pig already cooked.
“He told me, ‘I know you are alone at Christmas so you don’t have to cook dinner and eat well’.”
But the Spaniard admitted that he is struggling to adapt to the food on offer in England.
He said: “I’m adapting little by little to the weather and especially to the food here, which is a little different.
“I can’t quite get a taste of English food. They always send me my hams and my things from Spain, the other day they sent me a box of fabada so imagine.”
But former Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale has been on hand in North London to help him settle in.
He said: “I talk a lot with Bale. I already did it in Madrid and here too. I have him sitting next to me.
“We tell each other everything. It helped me a lot when I arrived here in the areas to live, the restaurants, the people who can help you.”
Reguilon revealed that he did not even speak to Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane before he left the Bernabeu.
When asked whether that hurt or surprised him, he said: “No, nothing surprised me.”

Reguilon keeps in contact with several of his former team-mates from the La Liga club.
He has urged Sergio Ramos to join him at Spurs amid reports that Mourinho is interested in signing him on a free transfer.
When asked if he would tell the 34-year-old to move to North London, he said: “Yes of course. In fact the other day I was talking to him.”
