Chris Sutton says Tottenham player was 'absolutely petrified' of a Man City player
Chris Sutton was quoted by BBC Live’s coverage of Manchester City’s Carabao Cup final win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday as saying that Spurs defender Sergio Reguilon was “absolutely petrified” of a City player.
In what was interim manager Ryan Mason’s second game in charge, Spurs were tasked with defeating a Manchester City side that are still in the hunt for a treble. They did just that, but needed a late goal from an unlikely source.
Aymeric Laporte, who came in for John Stones and might not have been playing had Stones not been sent off against Aston Villa last time out, scored the all-important goal as Spurs looked more and more likely to go to extra time.
But Spurs were by far the second-best side throughout the match and Sutton has labelled the £48,000-a-week (Spotrac) left-back as being scared of Man City’s Mahrez during the final at Wembley – with 8000 fans in attendance.
“He’s had a great afternoon Riyad Mahrez. He hasn’t got the goal he’s deserved. Reguilon is absolutely petrified of him,” Sutton said, during BBC Live’s coverage of the match over the weekend.
