EAGLE-EYED watchers may have noticed Sergio Reguilon’s futile attempts to “scold” Harry Kane, a former teammate.
The Spanish defender departed Tottenham last month to sign a loan agreement with Manchester United.
His former Spurs teammate also left North London for Germany in a £104 million transfer.
Tonight’s Champions League match between Bayern and United brought the two guys face to face.
Sergio Reguilon came face-to-face with Harry Kane in the Champions League tonight
Leroy Sane scored the opening goal thanks to a terrible mistake by Andre Onana, and Serge Gnabry extended the lead just before halftime.
Rasmus Hojlund’s goal for United after the break gave them hope, but a penalty from Harry Kane soon made Bayern’s lead two goals again.
The decision to award the spot-kick, which was made following a VAR check when Dayot Upamecano headed it against Christian Eriksen’s arm from close range, incensed both United players and fans alike.
“This handball rule, which only exists because of VAR, is pathetic,” one supporter raged on Twitter. That choice is scandalous.
But as Kane prepared to take the penalty kick, Reguilon’s recognizable face was in his face, whispering to him in an apparent effort to dissuade him.
And viewers quickly picked up on his attempts at using dark magic.
One person said on social media, “Reguilon trying his best there to put Kane off from his penalty.”
Someone else remarked, “Reguilon is reprimanding Kane.”
Another viewer remarked, “Dirty attempt by Sergio,” while another stated, “Dismal attempt to psych him out.”
