Gary Lineker poked fun at Sergio Reguilon ahead of Tottenham’s FA Cup clash against Marine yesterday after the left-back broke the COVID-19 regulation by attending a Christmas party along with some of his teammates.

Reguilon, Erik Lamela, Giovani Lo Celso and West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini were pictured in one house with eleven other adults, two children and a baby, which was a violation of the lockdown rules which prohibits households in tier four from mixing.

Tottenham released a statement condemning their players’ actions and reminded them of their responsibilities, while Jose Mourinho admitted that he was disappointed with the trio over their behaviour.

While Giovani Lo Celso is out injured and Erik Lamela was not available for selection, Reguilon made the trip to Marine and came off the bench to replace Ben Davies on the 70 minute mark.

Ahead of the FA Cup tie, Lineker joked that the Spaniard had enquired about renting the Arriva Suite for a party.

The BBC presenter is quoted by The Daily Star as saying during BBC One‘s live television broadcast (from 17:30 – 10/01/21): “Marine are in their home dressing room but Tottenham’s team talk will be delivered from the Arriva Suite, a function room that can be hired out for parties.

“Sergio Reguilon has already inquired apparently.”

Spurs Web Opinion

The club did the right thing by fining all three players for their mistake and making an example of them. Hopefully, that is last we see of any Tottenham players breaking the COVID protocols.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. While I will not back any spurs player who breaks the rules they have a long way to go to reach the levels of low reserved for Lineker. A dose of sick on the footpath has more respect than this excuse for a breath.
