In a recent social media post from Uruguayan Television’s Por La Camiseta, host Rafa Cotelo asks the Uruguay international for a Spurs player’s shirt, to which Bentancur responds, “Sonny’s?”, adding, “It could be Sonny’s cousin too because they all look the same.”

Bentancur apologised when his remarks were met with criticism.
