Tottenham Hotspur won over Newcastle United in their Premier League football match but Sergio Reguilon was uninterested in celebrating his side’s win after a fan was taken to hospital. Sergio Reguilon believes the health of a Newcastle United fan who was taken to the hospital is more important than his team’s victory.
The Magpies stated that a supporter was stabilized and transferred to the hospital after a medical emergency temporarily delayed play at St James’ Park, and Sky Sports confirmed. Shortly before the 40th minute, players were informed of a disturbance in the East Stand, with Spurs full-back Reguilon promptly informing referee Andre Marriner.
Reguilon, who was hailed for his quick reaction, said the victory was unimportant after such a traumatic situation. “I think three points is always a moment of happiness but, for me, what’s more, important is the guy, they are telling me he is okay and stable,” he told Match of the Day.
“I saw the fans waving and I saw a guy lying down. I saw something wrong had happened. I looked at the referee and he stopped the match. I think now everything is okay and 100 percent happy. It was very strange, we went to the dressing room and I was looking at the man lying down, I was nervous because I don’t like to watch that.”
Harry Kane shared Reguilon’s comments and extended his best wishes to the fan. Kane scored Spurs’ first Premier League goal of the season to put the team ahead 2-1. “Firstly, we want to say best wishes to the guy in the stands, it was not a good sight to see,” he told Sky Sports. “We hear that he might be stable now, so we’re thankful to the medical teams and the fans who were doing the CPR. Hopefully, he’s okay and we wish him all the best from all the players at Tottenham.”
