Sergio Reguilon, a Tottenham defender, has revealed how a medical issue caught his eye, prompting him to intervene and stop his team’s Premier League match against Newcastle on Sunday.
After an incident in the East Stand at St James’ Park that resulted in a brief suspension, the Spurs left-back was the first to signal to referee Andre Marriner to halt play.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s visitors overcame Steve Bruce’s Magpies 3-2 in the resumption of play, but the Spaniard has now revealed how he became aware of the problem while speaking after the game.
“I noticed the man was lying down. I was a nervous wreck. “Look at this, we can’t play like this, we have to stop the match,” Reguilon told Sky Sports News after the game.
“I glance at the crowd and say, ‘Stop, stop.'” “He’s lying down, it’s no good… please halt the game,” I remark as I look over.
