Reguilon embarrassed on home fans’ return

It was certainly a night to forget for Spanish defender Sergio Reguilon on Wednesday, after the former Real Madrid man skewed an Aston Villa cross into his own net.

It was an amateurish attempt to clear the ball, taking a wild swipe similar to what can be seen on many a school playground, or at a Sunday league match.

Not expected from a Spanish international.

He fell to the floor in raw embarrassment, with the mistake ultimately telling in a home defeat to Aston Villa. Ollie Watkins later ghosted in from Reguilon’s side to calmly slot past Hugo Lloris, the third and decisive goal of the game.

Spurs’ fans booed their players off at half time and full time, adding insult to injury.

Terry worsens Tottenham’s embarrassment

As if a home loss and own goal were not enough, the embarrassment of some Spurs fans was made worse when former Chelsea defender John Terry responded to some heckling from the crowd, by imitating holding aloft an imaginary trophy.

ESPN’s James Olley described how the former Chelsea captain got back at some of the Tottenham faithful, who had given him grief on the sidelines.

Spurs of course haven’t won a trophy since 2008, and are likely to lose star man Harry Kane as a result.

The England striker has supposedly informed the club that he wishes to leave at the end of the season, in search of the biggest accolades before he finishes his career.

Spurs were knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton, before losing to Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League quarter-finals. They then lost the League Cup final to Manchester City, having offered very little in terms of threat in a 1-0 result.
