'Doesn't know what he's doing': Jamie Redknapp hits out at Spurs player after last night
Tottenham Hotspur defender Sergio Reguilon has been slated by Jamie Redknapp in wake of his performance for Spurs last night.
Ryan Mason’s charges fell to a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last night, Reguilon sadly playing a part in both of the opposition’s goals.
Steven Bergwijn gave the returning Spurs fans joy in the opening ten minutes as he dispossessed Marvelous Nakamba and thumped home a ferocious finish from inside the box.
However, Villa drew level on 20 minutes when a tentative Nakamba delivery into the Tottenham box was miscued by Reguilon, who sliced the ball into his own net.
Six minutes before half time, a Reguilon clearance was charged down and fell to Ollie Watkins, who duly bore down on goal and slotted home from close range.
Redknapp was critical of the left-back’s role in both goals, telling Sky Sports (via Optus Sport): “It’s poor technique, he’s falling over on his wrong foot.
“The second goal as well, this is a poor piece of play. His head is in a tumble dryer by this point. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. Do not play it inside and get caught again.”
It’s a good job that this horrid season is coming to an end soon for Spurs.
A campaign that promised so much is finishing with Tottenham’s Europa League qualifying hopes hanging by a thread, no silverware, and Harry Kane reportedly looking to leave.
And the confidence of quite a few players looks so low at present – Reguilon is a good player but he’s had a couple of bad games in recent months, so he’ll be happy that the season is soon over and he can regroup.
