Tottenham Hotspur sends players home amidst extended shutdown
According to the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur have decided to send their players home at least until next month, following the extension of the league shut down.
Jose Mourinho’s side was the only team from London who was still training, after the Premier League decided to suspend all matches until April. Following the Premier League’s extension of the suspension until April 30, Jose Mourinho and the club have decided to change their plans.
According to the report, Mourinho will not restart training at least until early next month.
The players have all been asked to maintain their fitness levels while at home. Individual programs have been drafted by the coaching staff similar to what would have been done in the summer.
Players are expected to undergo what is essentially akin to a preseason once they return to Hotspur Way. In spite of the players being given a leave of absence, Amazon will continue to station a filming crew at the Spurs training facility. This is being done to capture on film, the players returning for rehabilitation.
The likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Steven Bergwijn have been given permission to come to the training ground when required as they step up efforts in rehabilitation. Moussa Sissoko is nearing a return and expects to be fit by the time the season resumes.

The shutdown can be counted as a blessing in disguise for Tottenham. The club have struggled without their stars and have fallen down the pecking order in the race for fourth place. With just nine games remaining, the return of these players can aid our quest for Champions League football.
If the matches do go as go ahead as planned, Tottenham will return to action on May 2 against Newcastle United at St. James Park.
